Paris 11 Sepr. 1807
Though I have not been honored with a ⟨s⟩ingle line from you since my return from the United States to Paris, near ⟨se⟩venteen months ago, to acknowledge the receipt of my communications to you in relation to the conduct of Genl. Armstrong; nor, indeed, respecting various other subjects ⟨o⟩n which I conceived it proper in me to address you, I shall not offer an ⟨a⟩pology for the liberty I now take in transmitting Copies, 1o. of my letter to the General dated the 1st. Inst., 2o. his note in reply, 3o. my note in answer ⟨t⟩hereto. With great respect & consideration I have the honor to be, Sir, Your Mo. Ob. Servt.
