Three or four days after the date of my last Letter, which was from Maassluys, and while I was yet wind bound there, M r: Murray, informed me that by private Letters from a friend he understood that my destination was changed from Lisbon to Berlin. On the 9 th: inst t: I sailed from Maassluys, and arrived here at the Adelphi, on the 12 th: Soon after, M r: King delivered to me your Letter of...
I have now the happiness of presenting to you another daughter, worthy as I fully believe of adding one to the number of those who already endear that relation to you.— The day before yesterday united us for life. My recommendation of her to your kindness and affection I know will be unnecessary. My sentiment of her merit, will not at this moment especially boast its impartiality , but if...
I received last Evening your favour of 1. March, together with one from my mother of the 7th: of the same month, but no dispatches—I am in hopes however that I shall now soon receive my new credentials, though unless they arrive in the course of a week, I cannot present them untill the kings return from Prussia—He is to leave Berlin on the 25th. and will be gone about 6 weeks.

Your letter by Mr: Paleske of 28 Feby: though short gave me great pleasure as it was so long since I had enjoyed that of seeing your hand-writing—I have indeed no right to expect that you should have leisure to write me at large upon any subject, and know that a free communication of your sentiments cannot be indulged, upon public topics—With regard to private concerns it more properly belongs...
Many months have pass’d since I received a line from you, or from my dear mother. From my brother Thomas I have no letter of a later date than July, and from the department of State I have but one dated since last February.—Perhaps I am to impute the greater part of this seeming oblivion of my american correspondents to my own remissness during the last winter—For six months however I have...
