TranscriptMy Dear Simms New York, 20th Jany [January?] 1817

You have now a much better channel
than mine to get the news of this Country therefore
I refer you to it Robert is well liked & will
improve on acquaintance & if he should not succeed
in life, it will not be owing to any defect in his
morals, his understanding, or his Education. With
the feelings of a father, I congratulate you sincerely
my dear friend, on the possession of such a son
Not knowing the Address of my old friend.
I enclose you a letter for him, which I beg you'll hand
to him & believe me, always yours truly
J. [John?] Chambers
