John Adams to Charles Adams
Philadelphia Nov. 23. 1794
Although you have not informed me, of the Result of your Examination at Albany, I shall venture to address this Letter to a Councillor at Law.
You will see by your public Papers tomorrow The Address of the Senate to the President in Answer to his Speech, and his Reply.1 I wish to know the Sensations and Reflections, both of one Party and the other in New York upon both.
I have Suffered Some Anxiety on your Account least you should be in Want of the Necessary. I should have Sent you Some before now if I had possessed any: but really I have been & am still confoundedly pinched. Within the two first Weeks of December I shall send you, enough for present Use, if I can get any for myself. If the House should trifle with their Appropriation Bill as they have sometimes done, I shall be puzzled for Sometime: but you may depend upon its coming in the Course of the Winter.
I should be glad to hear from you as often as your Affairs will permit you to write to your / Affectionate
RC (MHi:Seymour Coll.); internal address: “Charles Adams Esqr.”
1. The Senate’s reply to George Washington’s address to Congress and Washington’s response were first published in New York in the American Minerva and the Diary, 25 November.
