My dear Janet,
I thank you for your
suggestion note. Make my congratulations
to General McDougall

— Procure
for me and present him in my name
what you think will be pleasing and
appropriate – The Colonel

who only of
the whole family is near me, is dis-
graceful as an advisor in such matters.
I am glad to hear that the children

do.
