Lynchburg, Oct. 26. 1827.
You will have perceived, by our paper of the 18th inst. that your first letter has been published, before the receipt of your second, containing your wishes for correction. Under these circumstances, we were for some time at a loss to know in what manner to act; and had at one time determined to remain silent. But, we afterwards supposed that it was your wish to be definitely understood, and determined to insert your correction in what appeared to us to be the least objectionable shape. We hope the course we pursued will meet with your approbation. We have the honor to be, with great respect, your most obt. servants
