I came here in consequence of the very affecting events which have lately befall’n me, to unite the whole family together, for the consolation of all. I indulged also a hope, that by change of scene, and the exercise, my health would be improved. My family think that it has in some degree, but I am little sensible of it. The unfavorable weather, by confining me to the house, has deprived me,...
Young Mr Watson who has been with us, since the vacation, and will call on you on his return home, will give you information of the state of my health, & of that of my family.

Being very anxious to join and proceed with you to the University, to perform our duties there, I have delayed answering your letter of May the 18th, in the hope that my health would be so far restored, as to enable me to do it.

I was happy to hear by Paul last night, that you had arrived with Mrs Madison, and that your health had been improved by the journey, as I think that mine has.

He proposes, at the instance of...
I am anxious to know the state of your health, & whether it is such, as will enable you to attend the convention. I most earnestly hope that you will be able to attend it, for if I go, I shall be much gratified to meet you there, and whether I do or not, I am satisfied that your presence, altho you might take no part, in the discussion, would have a very useful effect. My health since, we...
We heard with great regret of your serious indisposition, but were relieved from anxiety, by a letter, some time since, from Mr. Taliaferro, which assured us, that you had nearly recovered, to perfect health. I have been much afflicted by repeated attacks, since we parted last, & by a recent one, which is the third, but am now so far restored, as to entertain a hope, that I shall be able to...
Since the receipt of your last letter, application has been made to me, from citizens at Leesburg to know if I would act in the convention if elected, stating certain data, to which they were attached, with an intimation that they concluded that I was so likewise.

The first proceeded from a fall, from my horse, who fell with me, & in rising,...
