you.– I am very full of business, but
not so much so, that I shall fail to
get you many letters – good ones –

debted to John Steward
Birth: 1777-04-04 Death: 1854-12-19
for the amount

yet agreed to take it– If it will be
a convenience to you I think I get
along without using it – let me know.

be there–
Poor Dana
Birth: 1797 Death: 1884
is upon his last
legs - the Whig gasps - he has gone

save the paper.–
