I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your very obliging letter of the 23d inst and beg you to believe that I shall ever highly appreciate this testimonial of your friendly attention— When I last wrote you I despaired of any thing like the slightest personal accommodation in this quarter, and determined to suffer in silence untill the proper opportunity should have occurred to gratify...
