Dear Sir—

Permit me to request your attention to the enclosed—I have endeavored to convey my sentiments with perspicuity & energy—The subject is a most important one, & I obeyed the impulse of duty—Conscious how much prejudice I have to encounter, I hope that some abler pen, will strengthen what is weak & enlighten what may be obscure—

I remain With sincere esteem

Thos Law—
