Dr. Duncan of Edinburgh an old friend having informed me, that Professor Cleghorne of St. Andrews wishes earnestly for an opportunity of being known to you, and having reminded me at the same time that Pr. Cleghorne has rights of hospitality over me; I hope you will not think it too presuming in me to introduce this gentleman to you. The pain I feel in taking a liberty of this kind, is...

But like that good Man, I put my trust in heaven, who ever assists the distressed. The City of Nismes...
J’ai bien reçu en son temps l’honorable vôtre du 3e. Nov. dernr.—La sympathie que V.E. me témoigne quant à mes souffrances, qui sont toujours les mêmes, les allege, et mon fréquent recours à Dieu, pour m’aider à supporter des Epreuves, dont je dois taire même et dévorer les plus cruelles, les terminera enfin, j’espere, de maniere ou d’autre pour mon plus grand bien.—Je me flatte que V.E. aura...

Dined with Mr. Tufts. Not very bright. Dr. Swett’s.
It is probable I may take Magnolio in one or two days & send him to So. Carolina. Then let me ask the favor of your furnishing me with his pedigree & age certified & your bill of sale.

This event will render it necessary for me to decline, otherwise the election may take...
