Sunday morg March 1808
I enclose for yr. confidential perusal the letr. on which was founded mine to the P. As I said last night, my answer much in the way, as you suggested is deemed I presume satisfactory. I also enclose the Ps. note to me with an endorsement which please to sign if not disagreeable.
It is the only document I hold to support the assurances contained in my answer.
I return the passport, as it not the one I wished to see, such as you gave Mr. R. However I fear you will not be able to do for me the boon I so anxiously desire, & fondly hoped for.
The letr. & note please return. Yrs. ever
