Well my dear Son, SCarolin has behaved as your Father always Said She would. the consequence to us personally is that we retire from public Life: for myself and family I have few regreats, at my age and with my bodily infirmities I shall be happier at Quincy. neither my habits, or my Education or inclinations have led me to an expensive Stile of living; So on that Score I have little to mourn...
