Description
Prescribes a regimen useful in alleviating the pains of old age; hopes he will live to see not only the close of the present war between England and France, but universal liberty and the extinction of all wars; would gladly come to visit him, but "a large and expensive family chain me to the pestle and mortar;" recalls the day they passed together in 1777, when Gates was on his way to oppose Burgoyne, and the plans they made for national happiness; a postscript says that as he now confines his labors to his patients, without combating ignorance and error, he is kindly tolerated by his fellow citizens.
