Cincinnati August 10th 1806
It is believed that Col Sandford of Kentucky has lost his Election, by voting with J Randolph against the passage of the Bill prohibiting certain articles of British manufactory, and that a Mr Johnson is the Successful Candidate.

God bless you with many happy years. I am Sir unalterably yours
