I think Mrs. Jamison has been misinformed concerning Mr. Miller I saw him the day he left here & he had gone to visit his friends. for the first time since his removal here & told me that any letter or package sent to Williams the silver smith who lives in Washington not far from Godsby's he would take charge of with pleasure He even said he would ride over to Arlington if he had time so that he could have had no idea of returning immediately the things I wrote for are of no immediate consequence so do not trouble yourself about them.
