The enclosed paper will give you an exact idea of that property belonging to of Doctor Welsh, and our Brother Charles, which it is that you would take under your care and management upon your arrival in America. When my library shall arrive from Lisbon you will consult with your mother for a place of security in which to lodge it. If it should be joined to that of my father, you will take care...
I received your favour of 24 July by yours for Thomas who a few days ago. I am fully persuaded that he will use his best in the discharge may find it useful and agreeable to himself. I shall with great pleasure give him any assistance in my power with regard to the study of the Law; but the for the present. I have not the necessary books with me nor is it possible to procure them here in the...
Mr: Welsh, who arrived here a few days ago, delivered me your obliging favour of 31st. July.—I am happy to find confirmed by you the accounts which we have from all parts of America, that France had lost many of her partizans among us. It was indeed high time for those whose attachments to her did not extend to the sacrifice of their Country, to decide under which of the banners they chose to...
My brother is no longer with me. Eight days ago he left me to take somewhat of a circuitous route to Hamburg, from whence he embarks for America, and where I hope within two months from this date, he will deliver you the present Letter.—He had been for rather more than four years, (with two short intervals) my constant companion.—I had neither a thought nor a paper, upon any subject, public or...
We have received and been entertained with your letters from Dessau, Magdeburg and Brunswic.—We hope to hear from you, to day or to-morrow, at Hamburg, where upon your arrival, you must have found abundance of letters, either to, or for you. You ask for news; but you are now so much nearer the sources of all the important news, that it must rather come from you to us, than go from us to you....
We have received your letter of the 12th: to Mrs. Adams, but that which you mention as having written the day before to me, has not come to hand. Perhaps the pleasures of the feast put it out of your mind to send it as I cannot well account otherwise for its not having arrived—My principal concern is that it would inform me whether you have received all the letters I have forwarded to Mr...
I know not how it happened, but so it was that your favor of the 11th: instt: did not come to hand untill the day before yesterday—And yesterday came those of 17th: and 19th: both together—I am sorry that you cannot get sooner off, and very glad that you are likely to get so good an opportunity for conveyance. I shall send you some more letters before you go; at present I have none...
I have the honor to enclose herewith, a letter from a young Gentleman who bears your name, and who flatters himself with being (though distantly) related to you. He is by birth an Hollander, but of a family originally English, which went over from England, and settled in the United Netherlands, sometime near the beginning of the present century. At the commencement of the present War, he...
I have received your’s of the 26th. enclosing one for Mr Welsh—I now forward those Letters for America, with which I threatned you in my last—Of all the news which you believed or expected to believe, the only parts likely to be confirmed, are the capture of the Leander with Capt. Berry on board, and of the two french frigates by the Colossus—The burning of the transports in the Nile has no...
I received a few days ago, your favor of 5th: September—The wisdom of the system of policy adopted at length by our Government towards France, has since you wrote been amply confirmed, by the total alteration of her tone relative to the United States—She shows indeed yet an extreme reluctance to the adoption of any measures of substantial Justice towards us, and shrinks with an ill grace from...
Without an extraordinary portion of incredulity, I might still dispute, the full confirmation of your news, as the whole of the Brest squadron, was not taken by Sir J. B Warren, and we are yet quite uncertain here what part of it really fell into his hands—But I had rather beleive in the official confirmation of the reports announcing the destruction of the transports at Alexandria, though it...
I write a line in answer to your’s of the 9th: and to send you the enclosed for J. Hall, though the wind here is easterly since yesterday, and you may have improved it, to sail upon your voyage. There are no Russian troops marching towards Pomerania—There is a new Edict here against secret Societies, of which I shall immediately forward a translation, though probably not in time to reach you...
We received your short Letter of 19 November written just as the pilot from the mouth of the Elbe was about to leave you. Since that time untill this day we have had almost incessantly Easterly winds blowing, & we hope that you enjoyed the benefit of them, & long before this find yourself restored to the bosom of our Country & friends. Since your departure several circumstances have occurred...
I received a few days ago, your letter of 16. Octr: last, written from Quincy.—With respect to the renewal of the Treaties with Sweden and Prussia, I have kept the Secretary of State regularly informed of my proceedings, and the answers given by the respective Courts, which therefore there is no occasion of repeating to you.—I have likewise given him a general sketch of the occurrences of...
After a long period of deep concern, and anxiety, on account of your health, I feel myself in some measure relieved by the receipt of your kind letter of 2nd Decr:, which I received the day before yesterday, that which you mention as having written me on the 15th of November, has not yet come to hand. At the same time, I received from Mr. Pitcairn at Hamburg a line, mentioning, that the vessel...
Somewhat more than a month ago I received the very welcome intelligence that the vessel on board of which you were a passenger had arrived at New-York. Some days later, a letter from Mr. Murray mentioned that he had seen your arrival announced in a Philadelphia newspaper of the 15th: of January.Soon after, I received from our ever dear and honoured mother a letter of 1. Feby: fully confirming...
The day after I wrote you last; I received yours of 17 Jany: brought by Mr. McHenry, and which in Chronological order should have come to hand first. My present object is only to say something relative to my own affairs. By letters from our mother written before your arrival, I learnt how Charles had conducted, with regard to my property....To comment upon his proceedings would be useless, but...
I have to acknowledge the receipt since I wrote you last of your two kind favours of 15. November and 1. February last—The latter is the latest letter, from America that I have, and I still continue to receive as I have ever since I have been in Europe, received from you the most recent intelligence both public and private. As in this case the first direct notice of my brother’s arrival came...
I received some time ago your kind favour of 1. December of the last year, and should have answered it sooner, but have been waiting untill I could have the pleasure of communicating to you better intelligence than of my dear wife’s illness: your letter arrived just at a moment when she was again taken ill, as she had already been twice before, and she can scarcely be said even now to be...
I received some time ago your favour of 29 January which I did not immediately answer, from an apprehension that a letter from me without one at the same time from my Louisa, or at least without some satisfactory information concerning the state of her health would give you more concern than pleasure—She was then unwell, and a few days after, met again with a misfortune which had already twice...
I enclose herewith, a letter for Messrs: Jennings & Woddrop of Charlestown, which I will thank you to forward to them & to send them at the same time Six dollars, which you will charge to me—I suppose you will easily find an opportunity, & be sure to send the dollars with the letter, for it is to repay money, which they have advanced, to comply with a request from me, & I know not otherwise...
My last letter to you upon private affairs was of April 29. Since which I have received none from you, when untill last evening, when your’s of 4. to 12. March, from Quincy, and of 11. May from Baltimore, both come to hand—In the last, you mention having written me, at full length, the week before by the way of London, but this letter I have not received Your account of the administration of...
I received not untill last Evening your kind favour of Feby: 10. which however is the latest date that I have from you, and this circumstance is of itself sufficient to give me great concern respecting the State of your health—The Boston Newspapers in April, mention likewise that you were again ill; but I have some comfort in hearing by a letter from Dr: Welsh to his Son, that you were again...
I wrote you last week, and now repeat for your information in case that letter should fail in the conveyance, that I have concluded to keep my obligations in Holland, and not to dispose of them, as I had proposed to you in my letter of 29. April—But that you may on the 1st: of January next, draw upon the Secretary of State 2000 Dollars, on my account, and send me an order upon Messrs: Willink,...
To your long letter of March 4–12. I ought to say something more than is merely contained in mine of the 1st: instt: in answer, without waiting for your letter by the way of England, written in the beginning of May, which I have not yet received. Yesterday a couple of small packets of news-papers and cuttings dated February and March, came to hand, which I suppose you sent with your letter...
I received last evening your letter of 5. May, and having written you twice within a fortnight have now not much to say.—But I cannot forbear to give you my best thanks for your care relative to my affairs both at Boston and New York, as well as your own use and employment of the authority which I gave you to draw in my behalf—I fully approve of all your proceedings. I have this day drawn upon...
I received your N. 6. dated 3. June, about three weeks ago, at this place, and should have replied to it sooner, but for a violent fever which seized me on the first of this month, and confined me for about ten days—It was only an intermittent, and paid me no more than five visits; but they were long and severe enough to leave me very weak.—I think myself now altogether recovered, and can...
My last Letter to you was from Töplitz, of the 16th: of last month, since which I have received your N: 7. June 26. and 8. July 12. the former, a few days before leaving Töplitz, and the latter since arriving here.—Your punctuality, and frequency in writing, give me the greatest pleasure, and your constant attention to my affairs deserves my continual thanks.—I presume that before this time...
I received at Töplitz, on the 3d: of last month, your kind favour of 12. June, which I did not immediately answer, because I was then in bed, with a fever, which however confined me, only for about ten days, and since then my health has again been very good.—The principal motive of our Journey to Töplitz, I wrote you before I left Berlin. It was on account of my wife’s health, and with the...
My last letter to you, was from Dresden, and dated the 17th: of last month, since which I have not had the pleasure to receive anything from you. We spent a month at that place very agreeably, & as long as the picture gallery remained open, I did not fail to visit it almost every day. We likewise went to Königstein, & saw also at Dresden the electoral jewels, the library, the old porcellain,...
