George Mason to Benjamin Harrison (October 13, 1780)

Fairfax County Gunston-Hall, Octor. 13th. 1780.
DEAR SIR.
If there shou'd be a Call of the House, I beg the Favour of you to inform them of the Reason of my Absence; & to assure them of my Attendance, as soon as I am able.
I had some time ago a bilious Fever, & after it repeated Fits of the Convulsive Cholic; which have now left me; but I have still Fevers of Nights, with frequent Threat'nings from a wandering Gout; which makes it very unsafe for me to undertake a Journey, until I recover a little Strength.
I am, with the greatest Respect, Dr. Sir., Yr. most obdt. Hble Sert.
G MASON
