I recd both the letters wch you did me the honour of writing, & the duplicate of one of them. It gives me a satisfaction not easily expressed to find that the liberty I took so much against common forms in writing to you, met with so favourable an interpretation; & the testimony you are so kind as to give in favour of my exertions in the Annals is the most flattering applause I could receive;...
It’s with pleasure I inform you, your Goosberry Slips are in excellent Order Captn Dwyer has taken such care of them & kept them so warm that notwithstanding the intense cold Season they have now buds near an inch long. I find it will not answer to send them by the Land Stage, as the Jolting would effectually destroy the⟨m⟩. You may therefore expect them by the first Packett after the...
