You and I my dear Madam have trod together through one Gloomy Scene of War, Havock and desolation, and have see our Country rise Superior to the oppression and despotism.

I inclose you the Letter which gave me every reason to expect that Thomas was on Board Capt Jenkins. as he is not mentiond, and I have not heard any thing, I am fearfull he did not come.

The conduct of Dr W——h is...
I received your two Letters together of August 20th. I have every day since designd to write to you, but have not been very well. I do not know the cause yet for many years, the Month of Sep’br. has depressed my spirits more than any other. I believe it always brings with it some dregs of the old Ague and fever. I most sincerely mourn for the distressess of N York and Philadelphia; but know...
If I have not written to you my dear Neice it is not because I have not frequently thought of you through the winter. Your good mother has often informd me of your welfare and that your little Girl was well. I have sent by Mr Black a little token of my Remembrance to her not because I thought you had not pretty things in Boston, but merely that she might have a slip of my giving her, if she is...

I well remember...
I have not written to you since I receivd your Letter giving me an Account of the ordination, the fatigues of which I should have been glad to have shared with you, and I could not but blame myself, that I did not write to request mrs Porter to have opend our House, and Stables, and to have accomodated as many persons as they could. It is now happily over and I congratulate the Town in having...
I have received your Letters of the 24 & 28 of Jan’ry. if you continue in the use of so many learned words—you must send a dictionary explanatory of them. When you talk of your solitude I fully Comprehend that, and commisirate you in it. I hope you have not Sleepless Nights added to your other torments. I cannot reconcile myself to the Idea of Thomass setling in philadelphia. I Shall try to...
I will not let a vessel Sail for Hamburgh that I know of, without taking a few Lines from me, if it be only to inform you of the State of my Health, which I know you are affectionately interested in. It is not what I wish it was, tho by no means So low as in the Summer past. your Brother is on his way to Quincy. I hope to see him in the course of the Week, and to disswade him from his present...
