Patrick Henry to Spencer Roane, August 23, 1797

Dear Sir Red hill Augt. 23d. 1797

After waiting a good while for an Oppertunity to send you the Certificate of my Oath which you desired, I last Week put it into the Post Office at Charlotte Cot. house—I did not know of the present Conveyance by Mr. Syme, which is preferable to the other: And now I have nothing of Importance to comunicate—We keep tolerably well; tho’ the Season, & our Situ[a]tion on the River give too much cause to apprehend Sickness—We had Hopes to see you & my dear Annie this Fall with the Children, & do yet continue to hope for that pleasure. Comend all of this Family to all with you & beleive me dear Sir to be affly yours

P. Henry
