I recieve your letter as a proof of your friendship. I had been some time suspicious there was something on your mind unknown to me, and of which I thought I had a right to expect explanation. we may differ in our opinion of measures; but in matters of fact we cannot differ on due explanation. My present malady keeps me through the whole day incapable of business or conversation; and obliges me therefore to ask an interview any evening that suits you, on the subject of your letter. Accept affectionate salutations.
