Augt. 14th. 1804
I take the Liberty of introducing to you Mr. George Newton a Son of my old Friend Col. Newton of Norfolk on his way to Staunton.
I am sorry it is not in my power as yet to say when I shall have the pleasure of visiting you, as I am under the necessity of going down to York & Rosewell first. Mrs. Page unites with me in presenting our Compliments & best Wishes to yourself Mr. & Mrs. Randolph. Be pleased to inform him, that our Friend Mr. Carr was nominated, but that the Council seemed to have determined on Mr. Giles & Mr. Moore to supply the places of Mr. Nicholas & Mr. Venable in the Senate.
I am with great respect & Esteem your obedt. Servant
