Adams Papers

From Thomas Boylston Adams to Abigail Smith Adams, 16 January 1799

Philadelphia 16 January 99

My dear Mother

I reached my fathers house at 4 o’Clock yesterday afternoon, and had the happiness of finding <my> him in health. He gave me the cordial welcome of a father who approves of the conduct and behavior of the Son who had been absent. I can write nothing for your information from hence, as I am too much in haste to make the necessary visits to the Cabinet & Congress Gentlemen.

I will write you when more at leisure. Mean time I beg to be cordially remembered to all friends—to Louisa your warm bed fellow &ca: I was rejoyced to read your two letters received last evening after my arrival, and hope shortly to receive one to myself.

With affection / Your Son

TB Adams
