Monticello Aug. 9. 07.
I recieved yesterday your favor of the 5th. and am truly sorry that my error in addressing the answer to the Master mariners of Baltimore was the cause of any uneasiness. I now inclose the correction you are so kind as to recommend, open for your perusal, & hope it will be satisfactory. will you be so good as to seal & deliver it? mr Nicholas and his family left this neighborhood on the day of my arrival in it. I understand they were well, as are also the family of Carrsbrook. I salute you with friendship & respect
