Description
Regrets that misunderstandings have arisen between them on account of politics; but his good opinion of Kinlock and his strong friendship for him make him desirous of retaining those sentiments; avers that no American is so seldom seen at the Carolina Coffee house as himself and that he has little time to read the public papers; still thinks Kinlock's political principles wrong and abhors his sentiments with respect to his country, but believes he is sincere; is studying law in England, but will soon return to Carolina; Richard Hammond will deliver this letter and some pamphlets; he has been recommended to Chauvet's house in Geneva.
