Summary
Sends print of his portrait by Du Simitiere. Encloses a letter of Peter Jay Munro in French- uncorrected so that Peter Jay can observe his grandson's progress. Spring has been very favorable, and the abundant harvest is already depressing prices on the grain market. Summer is very hot and the fields become scorched, as if by fire.
