Text

Mrs Willis presents her most respectfull complements to the President an Lady and begs there acceptance of four glasses of Virgia honey. She has not a doubt of that article being plenty in the State of New York but perhaps not wrought in the same manner and of course not so pure. She flatters herself if it has no other recommendation than being sent by an acquaintance from a place near that of his Nativity they will be induced to taste it and will be happy to hear of the welfare of the family and that they have made an agreeable breakfast on it.
