Summary:
Received letter of 24 November; thanks him for his attention but observes the letter was written in too great haste. Hence the writing was poor, and he omitted answering a question. To avoid such an error in the future, mark the questions in another person's letter before sitting down to reply. Advice that what a man writes affords the strongest evidence against him therefore caution is dictated. Family news.
