that Mr. Hewitt was not in the place, but on inquiry and re quest, I obtained a short interview, with Mrs. Hewitt, with whom I left your letter, requesting, that Mr. Hewitt, might be presented with it as early as possible. It is proper for me to add that I learned from Mrs. Hewitt, that her husband; had frequently spoken of his wish to become further acquainted with this people, whom he had come out from Europe to see, and that in con sequence of rain had been prevented from visiting us at an earlier date. From the short acquaintance with Mrs. Hewitt, I can add that I was treated. with that politeness becoming a stranger, and have little doubt but he will eventually visit this place as this was the intimation which I received, that he was contemplating on teaching himself for at least a few months near this.
Accept assurances of my gratitude for the appointment I received from you, while I subs cribe myself your obedient servant, Oliver
