Letter to historian Henry Howe in New Haven, Connecticut, in full: "I have received your favor of April 12th and the accompanying volume entitled 'Historical Collections of Virginia,' which you have been as to present me. I beg you to receive my sincere thanks for this interesting and acceptable work & my best wishes for your health and happiness." Matted and framed with a portrait to an overall size of 16.75 x 13.75.
