18. Augst. 1829
I have recd. yours of the 11th. inst: It was certainly not necessary to satisfy me that your father had lost nothing of his title to the esteem & friendship I have ever entertained for him. I had myself a letter from him dated as late as June 19 which enclosed several interesting communications, on subjects within the scope of his consular attentions.
You will gratify both Mrs. M. & myself by fulfilling the promise of a visit. But I must remind you that the month you name for it will probably not find us at Montpr. We hope another period will not be inconvenient, to you. With respect & cordial salutations
