Adams Papers

From John Adams to Abigail Smith Adams, January 1799

[January 1799]

The Solitudinarian of high Street to his dearest Friend

If I had the Logodiarrhea, you would hear from me oftener than you do.

When Thomas leaves me, which will be some day this Week, I shall be more Solitary in my own Judgment than ever. But I must let him go to see you, both to gratify him and cure you. After he shall have been some time at Quincy I hope to hear that your health is quite established.

He seems determined to settle in Phyladelphia and will come back to this place about the time that I shall leave it. This looks unlucky and the Plague too I suppose will be almost ready to drive him away as soon as he returns.
