Adams Papers

From Thomas Boylston Adams to William Smith Shaw, 6 January 1801

6th: January 1801.

Dear William.

I enclosed you by the Mail of <this day> yesterday a Substitute power of Attorney to receive the interest upon the Stock Standing in the name of J. Q. Adams—I now send you a power to receive the interest due upon One thousand dollars Standing in my own name. You can transmit me the amount by a Post note which Mr: Dalton I suppose, if applied to will furnish. I am not confident whether he is the person to apply to, but any one in the Treasury department will inform you.

I presume the President will receive by this Mail the prospectus & the first number of the Port Folio. There is much original & valuable matter in the thing, which I sincerely hope may florish.

Friends here are well—I received to day letters from my parents of the 2d: inst; which want of time prevents answering—

I am ever your’s

T B Adams

Judge & Mrs. Cushing leave this tomorrow for the City—
