my dear Shaw

I thank you kindly for sending me <Cen> the Centinel containing the pieces upon Neutrality signed Marcellus—which I have long been seeking without success—I hope you will be able to lend it to me long enough to get Copied those papers—for no human being knows the value of them so well as I do—not accepting the Author of them himself—.

I hope you have not forsaken us—. The time seems very long since we had the pleasure <to see> of seeing you. <here,>—There the sight of you is alwawy grateful to your friend and / Uncle
