Mr Frederick Kinloch, son of Mr Francis Kinloch with whom you was acquainted—being on his way to Va. wished to have the opportunity of an introduction to you, as the much respected friend of his father. I took the liberty of giving him a line1 & hope he was gratified by meeting with you. I remain D Sir Your friend &c
