received the following note of sympathy:
"'I have feared to intrude upon you, my dear
sir, but want to tell you how deeply I sym
pathise in your grief -- a grief of which nobody
can better than me appreciate the cruel feel
ings. You will hear from me, as soon as I
find myself again near you, to finish the work
you have so well begun. Accept my affection
ate and mournful sentiment. -- LAFAYETTE.
