My dear Sir,

I was much pleased a few hours since by the arrival of Woodson and the dogs, and much obliged to you for sending them in, I had been at home but a few days and intended starting Salem to Rockingham on Monday next,. Tell Sterling that in two weeks I will have them in good running trim and if he will come down to see me then or afterwards will give give him such a a treat as he has not had in many a day. I am in hopes of having John to come out and if and spend some time with me during the hunting season.

My love to Aunt and all the family.

? your friend,

? Jones
