I am requested by Mr Claudet <1> to address you a few lines to state, that as he is deprived of your letters in answer to his <2> of the 4th inst, he is afraid the same has miscarried, & that you may not attribute his silence to any neglect of his, he will be most happy to hear from you whether you have or have not received his letter.

I remain, respectfully
Your most obedt Sert
