Original copy of letter on file at Rutherford B. Hayes Library


                                                    Washington - July 8, 1838

Dear Sir,

We found our impatience and our circumstances such as to deprive us of the pleasure of visiting you.  We set out this evening on our return home.  I write both for Mr. Clay and myself, and beg you accept our sincere acknowledgements for your kindness and hospitality.

                                                                 Very respectfully,
                                                                 
Yours truly,
                                                                 J. J. Crittenden

Josiah William Ware, Esquire
