McLean is greatly grieved over the loss his young son (John?), "a lonely boy." He tells of visiting the vault where he lies, in Cincinnati, and expresses the hope that he will not be buried until he returns and can see him once more. McLean mentions a bill before the U.S. Congress to grant a township of land to Augusta College in Kentucky. Abstract Number - 1002
