Balt. Mar 31. 1820
The 16th vol. of the Weekly Register was sent, I believe to Boston for you & the 17th, (up to the 1st of this month) is only just bound. However, finding that they are franked to you, I have put those volumes in separate packages, & sent them by the mail.
I had the pleasure when last at Washington to pay my respects to your son, the secretary of state, & was much gratified with my visit.
Be pleased to accept the honest assurance of my respect & esteem—perhaps I might, add, of my veneration.
