Montpr. Mar. 2. 1824
I recd. by the mail of last evening your letter of Feb. 22. and have dropped a few lines to the President recalling his attention to the subject of my former one
I return the letter from Mr. Marshal. I am very sorry to learn that he has been so little successful in regaining his health; and that a final failure will bequeath to his amiable relict a situation for herself & infant charge, calling for so much sympathy.
