Charlottesville June 23rd 1825.
J B Benson, presents to you, his warmest feelings, and best wishes, for your recovery—and trusts it will be a speedy one—I am truly pleased to hear that you are considerably better to day—
I would have visited you, but knowing (or rather believing that our Friends, often do more injury than good to a Sick person—I contented myself with the glad Tidings I daily received, from daily enquery—that you were getting better—
J. B. Benson
