Dear Daniel

This morning I enjoyed the great pleasure of receiving your magnificent present what could have been more acceptable to me, than your own likeness, but how can I thank you as I should, for such though- -tful kindness. I shall ever cherish it as one of my greatest treasures. I had hoped to have seen you yourself at Portage
