While these evidences of respect and veneration paid to the memory of our illustrious Chief, make the most grateful impression on the heart of Mrs. Washington, she finds that the only source of Consolation is from that Divine Being who sends Comfort to the Afflicted, and has promised to be the Widow's God. Your prayers for her health and happiness are received with gratitude, and reciprocated with sincerity.
Be assured, Sir, of the great respect and esteem with which I have the honor to be
Your most obedt Sert
