I have to acknowledge yours of the 4th Inst. and two subsequent, inclosing public documents and to express my grateful sense of these attentions. Your opinions concerning the late changes in Massachusetts and your reasonings and impressions resulting from them, entirely coincide with them mine. I was particularly well pleased that you find no fault with the “medecines” administered, but...
I am duly sensible of your polite attention in your letter of the 13. Inst. and its inclosure.

I then promised her I would transmit mine, as it was of no use to me. But it escaped my memory until this moment. I now take the liberty to comply with her request. When you find me a subscriber to this paper, I hope you will not...
