My Dear Friend -

Give me leave to indroduce my friend and relation Colonel William Aylett to your acquaintance and friendship. You will find Colo. Ayletts worth deserving your esteem, and his connection with me, will, I am sure not lessen it.

No news since my last, we know not yet where the Boston fugitives are gone

farewell my dear Sir.
R. H. Lee
