Montpellier Ocr 11. 1823
I have duly recd your letter of the 1st and will thank you to put my name on the list for the prints of the Resignation of Gen: Washington. That of the Declaration of Independence on hand for me may be sent in a tin Tube by some vessel to Fredericksbg to the care of Wm S. Stone, unless a convenient conveyance should happen to offer for Washington, in which case it may be conveyed to Mr Cutts. The print will come most readily without a frame, and I believe I have a blank one which will answer for it. Having forgotten the cost of the Print, I must ask you to note it with whatever charges may be incident to the transmission. Mrs M. offers a return of Mrs T’s & your kind expressions: to which I add my respects & good wishes
