Washington

My dear Sir,

I notice your remarks on a recent event in N York, but am satisfied that you are too wise to refrain at what a sensible man will regard as the fortune of political warfare. What has happened to you, <has> to others & may to me, but we must console ourselves with the reflection that in our case Othello has more than one occupation. Make my best respects to the ladies & believe me to be

Your friend &
