I now inclose you a state of the tickets received by Mr. Wayles and to whom sold. It is taken from two or three states made out by him at different times and corresponding with one another.

Your favor of Jan. 15. with Mr. Robinson’s letter came to hand Jan. 30. I immediately put them into the hands of a Professor of the college here, in whose recommendations I should have confided.

Your favor of the 13 th was recieved by our last mail. Francis is now here engaged in learning Spanish. I thought he could not employ the winter better. but he has lost much of it at home. I think in a couple of months he may make such progress as that he will be able afterwards to pursue it by himself.
