[salute] Dearest Friend
I have time only to inform you that We are well, and to repeat my earnest Wish and
Expectation to see you as soon as possible. Draw upon me for Whatever Money You want
and it shall be paid at Sight.
I have been invited by the Duke of Portland and Mr. Fox to See them and I have Seen
them and Mr. Burke [an]
d met a cordial Reception from all three.1
These would [do?]
right if they governed. But I am not certain, they are not Sometimes overruled or
Comfort yourself for the Loss of your Father amiable and excellent as he was. His
Age was such as to have renderd it a duty, to be prepared to hear of his Decease:
and his Virtues were such as to leave Us no room to doubt that the Change is happy
[salute] My Duty to my Aged Mother, and Love to the Children.
