Madam

In a codicil acted to my brothers will, among other clauses is the following "I leave to Mrs Anne Ord, daughter of the late Chief Baron ten guineas to buy a ring as a memorial of my Friendship & attachment to so amiable & accomplished a person as witness my hand day & date above" David Hume

In obedience to which, you will please receive it inclosed, hopeing it will be accepted, as a mark of his esteem: & if you will allow me to add, my approbation of it, & to express my sense, of how well it was placed and one, who merits all regard of him, who is with great esteem

Madam

Your most obedient Servant
