Sir

Your very able & eloquent address to the Senate of the United States ^powerfully^ advocating the just claims of the surviving Officers of the Revolutionary Army (of which you did me the honor to favor me with a Copy) demands their most grateful & sincere acknowledgments. Of the few who remain all will I am persuaded Sir ever consider you as their friendly benefactor and no one can be more sensible of the obligation we are under while I thus adopt for them a sentiment which warms my own bosom I beg you in their behalf and from me to accept the assurance of our profound respect.
