From Charles Francis Adams to Abigail Smith Adams, 13 January 1816

Boston January 13th: 1816

Dear Grandmama

Your idea of Osterley park being near our house is correct it now belongs to the Countess of Jersey the grand daughter of Mrs: Childs whose daughter married the Earl of Westmoreland.

Papa is so bysy he cannot take us any where not even to the play these holidays. I am afraid not but I hope so because I have not seen the Theatre Covent Garden or Drury lane but I hope in the Summer that Papa will take us to see many of these places.

The Duke of Kent has got a very pretty Country house and he goes to our School to see the boys exhibit.

Next half year I expect to <ha> get acquainted with more boys and I think it will be a great deal of advantage to me. My duty to Grandpapa

Believe me dear Grandmama / Your dutiful and affectionate GrandSon

C. F Adams
