To Philip Landais, 4 December 1799
NY. Der. 4th. 99
I have received your letter of the twenty seventh of November, and shall not be unmindful of you when any proper opportunity shall present itself.
I can assure you that no unfavorable impression was produced on my mind by your letter of the fourteenth of November—
