General:

Will you confer the happiness upon one of your humble friends by affixing your name to each of the enclosed cards. They are intended for two of my daughters, who will hand them down to their daughters, to be handed down again & again as long as my descendants shall entertain love for virtue, for liberty, and poor old Virginia. With all the love and admiration that can be felt for Man,

I am dear General

Alfred Chapman
