Montpr. Mar. 24. 1829
Since mine of the 19th. inst. I have recd. yours of the 16th., & hasten to comply with its request relating to your letters of the Spring of 1827 & those from Warminster of the last year. I send the original instead of copies, which cd. not be readily [made] As they are necessary to explain some of mine to you, may I ask the favor of you to let me have them again, after serving your own purposes. I hope your health continues to improve, and that will always be assured of my cordial esteem & regard
