Adams Papers

From Abigail Smith Adams to Harriet Welsh, 10 June 1816

Sunday Eve’g 10 June 1816

Dear Harriet

As I consider you as a part of my own Family, I Send you the inclosed, which you will return with care tomorrow morning tuesday I mean—we have Letters from Mrs A. from Utica and Susan one from Abbe of 2 June, in neither of which is any mention made of the Cols Sickness, or Caroline could not have reachd there, I think at that time yet I wonder as the distance was not further, that mrs Adams had not heard of his dangerous Situation.

I got home well and without taking cold—have been out this afternoon. In the fore noon wrote a Letter to mr A. which Harry Marston will put on Board for me; I am glad to learn that your mother continues better—thank you for the intelligence respecting the child. I felt anxious for the little creature—I want to know how mr Shaw is? can you inform us. his sister as well as I am anxious for him. I hope you will come out before you go away. If you miss a handkerchief—I have it. it shall be sent you when washed—yours as ever
