Summary: Trade with England.
My Dear Friend,
Your favor of the 4th of May was received
I shall Embark for France as soon as any opportunity shall present—the sailing of the Grand Expedition has suspended all intercourse with the Continent for some time past—but I am in hopes it will soon be restored again—I shall be obliged to go by the way of Holland—
The public papers will give you all the news afloat in this Country To them I refer you—not haveing time to say any thing on the subject of Politics.—
I have not heard a word from my friend Mr Bond since I left New Hampshire—I most sincerely hope that your arrangement with him will prove mutually beneficial—Success to all your Enterprises and laudable speculations, is the wish of my heart—
I am happy to hear that Austin and Charles Elliott have returned home—I hope that all things have been explained to your satisfaction and that of Doct and Mrs Elliott—to whom, as to Mrs. Austin, family and all friends I pray you to present me most Respectfully— and I beg you to be assured of my friendship and esteem
