Abstract:
Writes from Charleston, South Carolina, to commend his son to the Jays while the young man is in the North. Particularly eager that Sarah Jay will look over the boy "as I am principled in the belief, that women of sense, of easy & polite manners, are alone calculated to form the manners of young men on their first entrance into the World, and as I know not any lady who possesses these qualities in a more abundant manner than Mrs. Jay." Hopes that she will "Take him under her wing" in New York City.
