If the Letters contained in it should give you a satisfactory account of your friends, it will add to the pleasure I feel in being the channel of your correspondence.

I offer the compliments of the season to yourself & Mr Lloyd & have the honor to wish you the return of a great many happy New Years. With great respect, I am Madam your most Obt & mot hble servt
