Thank you for your letter of July 10th in regard to the Richmond Postmastership, which I have read with much care. You may rest assured that I shall seriously consider all that you say in behalf of Lewis Aylett.
I have just returned from Cornish, and find myself greatly refreshed from my brief holiday there.
I had, indeed, a most enjoyable time on the links. I hope some day to be in position to accept your challenge!
