Warburton Decr. 23 1806
My friend and old acquaintance Dr. Hamilton, of very respectable connections at Waterford Ireland, and of late a neighbouring Phisician to me but about to fix in Baltimore, having intimated a desire to wait upon You, I most cheerfully give Him this Introductory line with a solicitation for Your usual kind attentions and civility. I knew Dr. Hamilton a practitioner in London, for some years after a resident in Alexandria, & for the last two or three years residing in sight of this where the field is too circumscribed for Him. In all situations I found Him a firm friend to this his adopted Country, a combatter agt Toryism (to some effect) in Alexandria—an assistant to Us & our party hereabouts, and ever an admirer of Yours, altho mere chance has hitherto denied Him the pleasure of a personal interview or introduction.
He takes the City in a day or two on His way to Baltimore with a very amiable English wife. He will, at my request call on you, if but for a few moments, with this. I have been confined to Home or would have waited on You.—I hope Mrs. Randolph & Her dear little ones are fixed with You as heretofore & are all well; for except a letter from my old acquaintance Dr. Logan inclosing Your Speech (which is a highly satisfactory one to me) & the subsequent moves in Congress, I am a total stranger to the late movements in the City. Many happy Years—May You go on my good Sir continuing to do good & recieving the benefits of it.
I am wth great regard & Esteem Yr Ob Hm Servt
