MY DEAREST FRIEND,
I WISH you a happy new year, and a repetition of happy new years as long as time shall endure ; not here below, because I shall want you in another country, better than this. What do you say ? Shall I keep a national thanks giving with you ? I hope, before that day, we shall have good news from all our family, though we can not be all together.
Compliments of the season to L., and all my good friends. Don t forget my farm next time you write. I hope to find a letter at the Senate chamber.
