Philadelphia Wednesday March 26 1800
my dear Madam
The weather is now so fine that I judge the Roads will be good by the beginning of the week; it will give me great pleasure to see you here and either of the young Ladies with you; which can best accompany you; I do not mean to exclude your son. if mr Johnson himself cannot come your son will of course attend you. I shall endeavour to make Philadelphia as pleasent to you as is in my power, by considering you, as you request a part of my Family; I sincerly wish our Children were here also, to bid you welcome, but that day I fear is distant.
I received your favour of the 19 upon Saturday, and have mentiond to Major Jackson that your journey was deferd untill the beginning of April. by this day week, or thursday at furthest I flatter myself you will be with your Friend and Humble / Servant
