Jany. 1832

Dear Sir

According to my promise I send you the enclosed Sketch. It was my purpose to have enlarged some parts of it, & to have revised, probably blotted out others. But the present crippled State of my health, makes me shun the task; And the uncertainties of the future induce me to commit the paper, crude as it is, to your friendly discretion. Wishing to know that it has not miscarried, drop a single line saying so Be assured always of my great esteem & all my good wishes
