From Edmund Randolph
Saturday Morning [Philadelphia, December, 1794]
When I renewed the note for your friendly favor,1 just before your departure for the Westward,2 I did not take up the former one. If you have it, I will thank you for it, when it is convenient to you to send it. But I cannot close this subject, without assuring you of the sense, which I have ever entertained, of this, your disinterested kindness, and which, I can truly say, has never been forgotten by me in any transaction, which has occurred.
For the happiness of yourself and family in every future destination, I offer with absolute sincerity my ⟨war⟩mest wishes.
I am dear sir with great regard & respect Yr. mo. ob. serv.
