My dear friend

Permis me to offer you, in the name of young and very distinguished friend M. Thierry, an intimate friend also to mr de Tracy a Work which is much approved in france, and may seem to you not unworthy of your Historical selection for the University. The author is on the point of loosing His sight. it is a great pity

We leave Here for the Brandywine on the 7th. My Heart is too full to write more. Thousand Blessings on you and family.

Your old affectionate friend
