Summary:
Profuse thanks for Livingston's analysis of his character. "I think myself extremely happy in an assurance from you (whom I can't suspect of dissimulation) that no other material deficiency marks my character than the one you mention: and I thankfully acknowledge endeavours to remove that." With Livingston's help, Jay will preserve his character "fair and unspotted." Thinks that no evil consequences can follow such an analysis of defects, "our business being not to expose, but remove them." Encourages Livingston to develop his capabilities in correspondence.
