My Dear Friend
My friendship and respect for the Chief Justice, are equal to yours; that is to say, very great; and it would give me real pleasure, to be able to promote his wishes, in any respect. But what reason have you, to suppose that B—, is to go to France? Is there any such scheme, on foot; or upon what, is the idea founded? Your suggestion, is the first, I have heard of it. Pray tell me, all about it.
most truly yours
