Title
[Document, 1825 April 12]
Abstract
Was pleased to learn that his health was good, but regrets the inconvenience resulting from the state of his eyes. Advises the consultation of surgeons at New York on the expediency of the operation performed in such cases. His remark on patience from Homer is just; when patience comprehends resignation it becomes an excellent palliative. There seems little probability of their renewing the social interviews they formerly enjoyed. Has not seen Benson since September, when he was very well.
