[TO Aaron Burr.]
Thank Heaven, my dear father, I am at Lumberton, and within a few days of rest. I am sick, fatigued, out of patience, and on the very brink of being out of temper. Judge, therefore, if I am not in great need of repose. What conduces to render the journey unpleasant is, that it frets the boy, who has acquired two jaw teeth since he left you, and still talks of 'gampy'. We travel in company with the two Alstons. Pray teach me how to write two A's without producing something like an 'Ass'.
We expect to reach Georgetown on the 1st of November. There we shall remain three or four days, and then proceed to Charleston,. Adieu. 'Mille baises'.
