Memory, and sincere condolence in the dispensation of Providence, so afflictive to his Country - so distressing to his Companion and Friends.

With the address my mind renews the pleasure of a day, which with Mrs Cunningham, I passed at Mount-Vernon in the summer of 1796, and Mrs C. joins sincerely in respect and sympathy.

I remain, with perfect
respect
Dear Madam
