I have recd your letter of the instant; and am truly sorry for the change in your prospects at Charleston, wch may occasion yr. removal to some other situation. The regard due to your amiable family is justly the ruling consideration in such cases; and you well know the good wishes of both Mrs. M. & myself which have attended all your efforts to make a provision worthy of them, & your own laudable views & feelings. It is without abatement that I repeat those wishes in reference to the new experiment you are about to make; in which Mrs M. joins me as I do her in a tender of the kindest remembrances to Mrs. S. & your daughter.
