General :

Will you confer the happiness upon one of your humble friends by affixing your name to each of the enclosed cards.  They are intended for two of my daughters, who will hand them down to their daughters, to be handed down again & again as long as my descendants shall entertain love for virtue, for liberty, and poor old Virginia.

With all the love and

admiration that can be

felt for Man,

I am dear General

Your ob.= Servt
