Dear sir

Mr. J. Caldwell, who will present you this letter, being desirous of the honor of your acquaintance, I take pleasure in introducing him to you as a reputable and intelligent gentleman, and as the son of my particular friend, the worthy proprietor of these excellent waters. He is a member of the Convention, about to assemble at Charlottesville, of which I understand you are also a member. I unite my wishes to those of the Citizens of Virginia that your deliberations may result in the advancement of the good cause what they were intended to promote. I am, with high respect, Your obedient Servant

H. Clay
