AFTER amicable salutation it is represented to your generous soul that I was honored by perusing the longed for and friendly letter which you sent along with our esteemed Lord; and received great satisfaction. It is the rule of friend­ship to observe the same kind of attention, and not to forget me. Since the ardor of my affection is not to be expressed, I am there­fore obliged to leave it to your own generous candor.

“If my heart be warm some sign of it will appear.”

What should I say more?
