Feby. 1st. 1818.
Mr. & Mrs. Hanson are highly flattered by having it in their power to acknowledge the honor of an invitation to dine with Mr. & Mrs. Adams, and certainly do not regret less than Mr. & Mrs. Adams the circumstances which will deprive them of the pleasure of accepting it.
They take pleasure in reassuring Mr. & Mrs. Adams of their very high respect & consideration.
