dc.description.abstract Thanks him for sending speeches and documents from Harrisburg; devotes energies to the improvement of his lands who have deteroriated due to "injudicious husbandry" for 200 years; mentions additions to his family of two boys and a girl; has been "no idle drone since I parted with politics and the politicians"; fears that destruction will be wrought by "ambitious and unpricipled demagogues" but hopes "sound wisdom and patriotism in the country...[will] baffle all evil designs."
