Dear Sir.

I am so frequently importuned for particular information respecting the United States, which is comprised in the little volume, you have in your possession—That I am reluctantly obliged to ask the favor of you to send it to me—If you should wish to see it again I will return it to you or endeavour to have sent to me a copy of it from America to present you with—

I was most happy to see Gov Plumers letter to you—I believe it is only a specimen of the successive acknowledgements, you are yet to receive from the gratitude of my countrymen, for your devotedness to the interests of mankind, & to the immediate improvement of the condition of our happy Country—

With much Respect yr obt Servt.

J. Adams Smith
