and doubt not that they will afford you every consolation that existing circumstances will admit. Present me affectionately and sympathetically to them they also have lost a protecting affectionate connection and I have lost a much valued Friend.
It will give me great satisfaction to hear that your Health is perfectly reinstated, sorry indeed I was to find by your good Friend Judge Washington2 in October last that you had been ill.
Adieu my dear Madam and believe me truly and sincerely
