Mar. 7. 1834
I have recd. your two letters; the last dated the 25th. Ult: The Topics they embrace are important; But I must leave to others the attention they may merit. I am now entering my 84th. year, with a prolonged indisposition added to its infirmities; an apology, which I am sure, you will accept, for limiting myself to the thanks due for your friendly communications, and an offer of my good wishes for your continued health and a happy old age.
