Near Charlotttesville 13 July 1831
My dear Sir,
We much regret your being prevented coming here by indisposition, but hope for the pleasure of soon hearing of your amendment.
My Son Rutson having a particular desire to pay his respects to that antient friend of his father whose name is so familiar to him, is the occasion of this.
My daughter joins me in cordial salutations and best wishes to you, Mrs Madison and Mr Tod. Yours most sincerely
