Consequent of your first letter respecting Mr Vancouver, & his proposed publication, I wrote to him, and declined the honor of his dedication—I thank you for your second Acct of his performance, which confirms me in the propriety of the measure. It would have given me pleasure to have seen a Gentlemn of Doctr Moyes[’]s eminence; and I shall hope for the endulgence of it when he returns from...

The letter which you did me the honor to write to me on the 10th Instt came safely to hand, and claims my particular acknowledgments & thanks.
