Yours rec'd​ , & thanks—I still linger along here—the printing of my book is finished—but one or two little things I want to see too—& then I am in no hurry—Shall probably finish up altogether this week—& then shall come on to your house1—shall send you word a day beforehand—I am well as usual—Have had a very pleasant time here, & the book printed &c. to my entire satisfaction—Best love to John, Ally, & the dear girls—
