As you are in some degree releived from the pressure of Public Business, by the termination of congressional calls upon your labours—I avail myself of the leisure it may afford you in reading the Inclosed extract of a Letter recently rec’d from my worthy Friend Dr: Nicholls.—it may appear somewhat strange that he should refer to you in what he says about the slave trade.—but a few words will...
I am honor’d with your Letter of 8th of Novr with the devise & explanation, when which is truely beautifull & interesting. I shew’d to Mr Stuart with your wishes, he expressd great pleasure in Complying with them, but I regret to add, that in defiance of every persuasion of mine, & many of his Friends, Mrs Adam’s and your portraits, are as you last saw them. My first visit to Boston, after our...
I have been precluded an opportunity of writing, by two circumstances; one the want of eyesight, the other by a Succession of Company from various places and from various objects—we are now alone, and I devote the first interval to enquiries after your health—I have some ground to hope it has not been long interrupted, if I may judge from the very polite Letter written to a widow Lady, in the...
It is a source of Deep regret and vexation to me, that I was obliged to leave Roxbury without seeing you again—Bad weather, Bad, & sometimes impassable Roads by repeated unusual Snow Storms, together with a Bad cold, & Rhuematic lameness, kept me a prisioner to my House untill a few days before I came to this place—and being under a previous obligation to be here from the 7th. to 12th of last...
Nothing but the want of Sight has delay’d the acknowledgement of your most kind Letter of the 24th Ultimo—it reminded me of an Inscription Cut out of the frontace piece of a Church, I went to see at Millnor viz Full, & Intire Indulgences, Granted for all Sins, Past, Present, & to come—what can I say in return—only that it is impossible I thus can say or willingly do any thing Not for a moment,...
You can hardly conceive the dissappointment and regret I felt from the Information I rec’d from my beloved Friend your Father of the 22d Ultimo, that he had no expectation of your being able to leave Washington this season,—two days after my despondency was dispel’d by the Public prints announcing your arrival at Philadelphia on your route to Quincy, in this however there was great alloy at...
With great pleasure I saw it announced in the public news papers that you was able to attend the celebration of the 4th Instant—it was at least an evidence that your Health & Strength had improved since the date of the last letter you favor’d me with—I have since been solicitous to gather from every wayfareing passenger thro’ this place who have called on me, what they knew or could learn of...
I meant to have addressed you, immediately after I heard of your arrival at Quincy, but my health & spirits have been so much affected by the painfull event, which has summond you to the house of mourning, that I have been unequal to it and even now I require greater consolations, than I am able to offer you—But alas? what is left me, it is only the hope that the mantle of my Dear and...
With sincere pleasure I rec’d the assurance of my beloved Friend, your Father, that you intended very soon to make him a visit—I use thus early to claim your and Mrs Adams’s flattering promise of passing sometime with us before your return to Washington—en route, either going to Quincy or returning thither:—as its now assertain’d by the establishment of a new post stage Line which passes thro...
The Inclosed extract from a Letter I lately rec’d from my friend, Dr Nicholas, wch. I read to my dearly beloved friend yr. father soon after it came to my hand—he was so much pleased with it that he requested me to send you a Copy; And as his wishes are to me , the delights of obedience, I have promptly given it; presuming however that Dr N wd not wish it should be made public as comeing from...
