L-J Ltr 16 APR 1819 Cambridge April 16th 1819 My dear mother, This is to introduce to your acquuaintance Mr. Elliot of Boston whose visit to Alexandria, I hope you will endeavour to render as pleasant as possible. The ladies & gentlemen ( for I always place the ladies first, my dear madam) of this town, have treated me with politeness, hospitality, kindness so far beyond my desire, that I would be glad to return it, in some little degree, by attentions of this sort to any gentleman of that place. But Mr. Elliot is an esteemed acquaintance of mine, a friend of Mr. Norton & a brother-in-law of Mr. Dwight, whose kind hospitality I have very sensibly experienced. Your affectionate son, C. C. Lee Address on envelope: To Mrs Ann H. Lee Alexandria, D. C. To the polite at- tention of Mr Elliot
