My dear Madam                                Mount Vernon June the 9th 1785

I had the pleasure to receive your obliging Letter of the 14th of April by Mrs Macauly Graham - the kind expression of which, added to the Recollection of those days in which you honored me with your friendship, fill me with agreeable sensations; and will everbe dear to my remembrance, -

I thank you for introducing a Lady so well known in the literary world as Mrs Macauly Graham, whose agreeable company we have had the pleasure of a few days - she now returns to make happy those whome she left.

The friendship which subsisted between General Warren and Mr Washington will never be forgotten by the latter. it was among the first formed, and most lasting at Cambridge.- and with equel pleasure would be renewed by him - why it has slept the general cannot tell,- he recollects writing a long letter to Genl Warren in the year 1779, when the enemy were cantoned on the Rariton near Boundbrook in the Jerseys.- since which, all intercourse by letter has ceased: tho friendship is the same, -

He joins me in every good wish for you and General Warrin, and begs me to add the strongest asurances of the sincear esteem and regard he has for you both.- with sentiments of friendship and affection - I am Dear Madam your obed and obliged
