Your Brother Thomas has performed the painfull office of announcing to you the death of your Brother Charles. with what a weight of sorrow is my bosom opprest, when I reflect, that he was cutt down in the bloom of Life, in the midst of his days. he is numberd with the dead; it becomes me in Silence to mourn; mourn over him living, I have for a long time, and now he is gone.—the tender...
Since the date of my last, I have received your whole series to Number 17. inclusive, with the single exception of No 15, which yet loiters on the way; but the order in which they have come to hand has been variable as the wind. It may possibly create some surprize, that, without consulting you, I should have taken the liberty to bestow upon our Countrymen, through the channel of a correct and...
Since the date of my last I have received several numbers in continuation of the series, which you have been kind enough to address me, giving so ample & instructive details of your excursion to Silesia.

My last to you was written the day before I sat out upon a Circuit, into the interior parts of this State, for the sake of gaining health, as much as for any other object. I was absent but eighteen days and in that space of time, had travelled, on my return, nearly five hundred miles, without any disaster and for the most part highly gratified with my excursion. During my absence, Congress...
We are still without Letters from you. The Secretary of State received one dated in December; but no private Letter has reached any of your Family of a later date than early in Nov’br, now six months. I have noticed by the last English papers that many mails were due from Hamburgh. I fear that Letters from you have been intercepted, or stoped. I have written to you a Number of times since I...

Not a vessel has arrived here from Hamburg for several months and none of your letters later than the beginning of December have reached this Country. We know that in consequence of the severity of the past winter, the navigation of the Elbe was obstructed for many weeks,...
