Regrets that his correspondent cannot visit La Grange; thanks him for care of his American correspondence; the maps voted to him by the Virginia legislature have been found at Havre; he and his son have been kept in town by their attendance in the Chamber of Deputies; as soon as it rises they will go to the south of France to visit his granddaughter Natalie; his duties take up time which he would more gladly give to correspondence with his American friends.
