Revd Sr.

I herewith return you Mr. Tucker.s
Letter, I have perused it with pleasure, I heartily pitty
the Southern States which still suffer the evil of Slavery,
it will not be possible for them to get rid of it so easily
as the Massachusetts did, however every good mind will
exert itself to promote so desirable an end --

I have not yet seen the queries he enclosed you, but
when I do, I shall endeavour to throw in my small mite
to that treasure of happiness --

with great respect I am
Sr. your friend and humble Servt.
