I do not know what was the date of my last to you, nor of yours to me, nor is it material to decide on whose part the last omission happend. You may have learn’d from some of my former letters, that I was much engaged, that no opportunity presented itself, to determine me to write at one time rather than another, and that although I have always been extremely industrious, I have always found...

I embrace this opportunity by mr Thornton Secretary to mr Liston the British Minister to write too you, and to Send you two Speeches upon the Foreign intercourse Bill, one by mr Gallatin, and one in reply, by mr Harper. I wrote to you last week by Way of Hamburgh: but we are still without a line from you of a private Nature; and have only learnt of your arrival at Berlin from your Letters to...
mr Thorntons stay has been protracted much beyond the time I expected, and it gives me an other opportunity of adding to what I have already written, and of sending you the Printed coppy of the instructions given to our Envoys. the liberality of them has extorted acknowledgments from the minority, that they were eaquel to their most sanguine wishes, and satisfied many who had been imposed upon...

Inclosed is the Act which I mentiond in my Letter of the 26. It yesterday received the presidents Signature & tho not all it ought to be , it is a Step towards it, and if our Envoys were but out of the French dominions, much more decisive measures would be persued. It really seem’s to us, as if they were infatuated. Many of our vessels which came out under convoy have safely arrived. The St...
The June packet is to sail tomorrow, As I know you must be anxious for constant intelligence at this critical & important period I will not let her sail without writing to you, tho it is a hazard whether she will go safe, for our very coasts are infested with French privateers, who insult us in our own Waters. Every exertion is making to get our Frigates to Sea. We have some 20 Gun vessels...

My letter to Mrs. Adams of the 17th. under cover to you, must have reached you in course—By the last post I sent her some little sketches or drawings of the neighbourhood of this place, but I can now assure her that the originals are incomparably finer than the copies.

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.

Mr Houghton, an acquaintance of your Brother Thomas, call’d upon me last Evening, with the kind offer of taking Letters to you.

Since the date of my last letter, I have received none from you, of course I do not feel very culpable in having suffered so long an interval to elapse without writing, though, if a direct opportunity from this place had offered, I should not have neglected it. In my last, I promised to make out my Account at the commencement of the next Century, & this I intend doing, to accompany the present...
