My dear Nephew.

Last evening I informed you how the business of Residence went on – this day has been passed in practising the same monœuvres that we were entertained with in Senate – Baltimore has been rejected with many other questions proposed for the purpose of dividing the friends of the bill, but they have all proved unsuccessful – The house adjourned – today upon a motion for dividing the time of temporary residence between this City & Phila. – The same was tried with the Senate & rejected, the same fate is like to attend it in the H. of A. – Your friend Count Andreani is gone to see you – I have frequently called on him at his lodgings, but have not had the happiness to find him at home – I still continue weak since my Influenza attack which renders writing unpleasant to me, and only tolerable when I write to friends whom I value as much as I do you, and they are very few – Yours affectionately.

Richard Henry Lee
