Dear Sir

I am extremely sorry to find by the enclosed letter that the affairs of France put on so disagreeable an aspect.1

As I know it is your intention to proceed immediately on, I will not ask you to call at Mt Vernon now but hope it is unnecessary to say that I shall be glad to see you on your way going or Returning.2 I am sincerely & Affecy Yrs
