Since I am embarked in a very doubtful speculation, and I am ready to own, that I am by no means sanguine as to its success, yet as I am assured of your good will and best wishes towards the promotion of our interest, you must also indulge me in one request I have to make, which is to leave off croaking , which you know I never could endure, not because I could not appretiate the use and the...

As yet you will not expect any very brilliant account of...

Your favor of the 20th: inst: came to hand yesterday, in the condition, which you have the cover here enclosed, except that the wax was not broken. By some means or other, the packet was sent on to Washington , and the name of J. Adams, on the back of it, must have excited the curiosity of some body, who from appearances, took the very excusable liberty, in this free country, to inspect its...

I congratulate you upon the birth of another Son and the comfortable state of your wife’s health. My opinion of her grows more favorable in proportion to the increase of the male branch of her family, and by the time She is prepared to name her fourth boy I hope she will remember, that the joyless state of celibacy to which her husbands brother is condemned, should recommend him to the...
I duly received your favor of the 8th. inst. with the two last sheets of the Review. Your suggestion respecting the life of Florian came too late, as the paper was already put to press. I do not however think the circumstance of much consequence, since at almost any distance, of time the person, who opened the letter, might recollect when he saw it in print, when & how & where he had seen it...

I received your Letter from Providence and rejoiced in the favorable account you gave of your journey thus far, but a Letter Since received by your Sister dated at Newark gave us all much anxiety upon Mrs Adams’s account. We hope her disorder was only occasiond by over fatigue; and that a little rest would restore her. She is a veteran in journeying, and has frequently gone through what would...
I did not expect a very frequent correspondence with you when you left me; however interested we each of us feel in the happiness and prosperity of our Country, there is little hope that observation, upon the measures pursued, or anxiety for the event of them, would alter or amend them: The Group which composed the National Counsels as is certainly such an one, as has not heretofore been...
We have not a printer in Boston who gives us any of the debates in either house of Congress: I have seen the National intelligencer for a few weeks past, I there read the debate which I presume was the cause of dr Eustice writing to mr. Jos’ Hall the following, “You will probably have heard of the Bold an independant manner in which JQA. voted away from his party, having gained credit with us...

I reached Boston on Saturday Evening the 10th: inst: and came out to Quincy on Sunday afternoon, with Cousin Shaw—Our parents are well; my Mother is wonderfully recovered, and seems to me to be as active & busy as ever about her family—this is a great comfort to me, and will help to render solitude in some measure supportable. . I feel, that there will be ample time to reflect on my future...

Malcom of New York to investigate, as far as he was able,...

I am indebted to you for two Letters Since I wrote to you. Your Letter of december 22d. I thank you for, as well as the other; to me your conduct wanted not any justification or explanation. I am fully Satisfied that you have weighed every measure, looking much further into concequences than those who censure and condemn. Yet I like to have some reasons to give to those who feel anxious upon...
I attended the Commissiones on the 10th. inst. and arranged your business relative to the House of Bird, Savage & Bird—I consulted the attorney General of the United States, relative to the appointment of assignees, and joined him in voting for the same persons in your case, as he employed in the claim of the United States—I have also substituted Mr. M. L. Davis to attend to the business, he...
I am sorry to say that I write you from my Sick Chamber, where I have been confined for near a week with the Severest attack of the Rhumatism which I have experienced for many years in my Limbs. I hope it will not be very durable, but submission is my lesson, and patience my Study. We last Evening received the Port Folio containing the Character of your much Loved Friend. I read it with a...
Your favor of the 14th Instant I recd last Evg. The Act you inclos’d is one of the most extraordinary that ever was taken up by a Legislature to authorize the P of US. to deny the rights of hospitality to any Ship of Warr upon the evidence most probably of a few drunken Sailors. it is the opinion of those to whom I have shewn it that it will soon tend to involve us in a Maritime Warr with...
We have this day quite and old fashinnd Snow Storm, after an unusual pleasent Feb’ry. the Snow is much deeper and more drifted than we have had, for several winters. the wind very high at NorthEast; from our parlour windows the stone walls are not to be Seen. it began yesterday noon to snow. After evening, the wind rose, and has continued through the night, and to this time without abatement....
I will write to you, if it be only for the Pleasure of giving you a Proof under my hand, that I am alive.—We have had no Topicks this Winter but Banks, Insurance offices, Toll Bridges and Turnpike Roads, till lately a Manifesto has appeared of the Republicans Democrats against Governor Strong, made up partly from Dallas’s and partly from the Connecticutt one which Mr. Tracy answered. Your...
I have had the pleasure to receive several of your letters and have regularly delivered the inclosures as you requested. The bill which you inclosed I gave to Major Russel for publication his paper being first published after the receipt of your letter—The same bill had been published in the Palladium several days and however ruinous its provisions might be to the peace and commercial interest...
A letter of yours, aged three months and eight days, which has lain unobserved, during all this time in the cover of another letter in my pocket Book has just fallen out upon me, like Yorick’s sermon, from Stevinus, upon the Corporal where I was looking, not after “Prince Maurice’s sailing chariot,” but after something altogether as unlike the result of my search. It is never too late to be...
I send you the enclosed which I recieved two days since and should not have delayed so long had I not been in hourly expectation of hearing from you. The children are both pretty well. John is about more teeth and suffers a little with his gums but is as fat as ever, my own health is so indifferent I shall certainly wean him next month. I have not yet heard of an opportunity to send the Trunks...
I recieved your very kind letter and was rejoiced to hear that you had arrived safe at New York as I was a little apprehensive Patty might occasion you some trouble on the road. I am extremely glad she performed her journey so well. It is painful to me to renew the subject of our last letters but I cannot suffer you to suppose that I remained here from choice had I had the slightest prospect...
I recieved your letter my best friend the day before yesterday which afforded me much pleasure as it assured me of your safe arrival at home I know not but it appear’d to me that your letter were not in good spirits when you last wrote you do not say you are well and I fear the fatigue of your journey has proved injurious rather than serviceable beneficial I had 20 Cents to pay Postage for...
I write you again my beloved friend in the greatest anxiety to hear from you as I fear’d from your last letter that you were unwell since last Sunday I have not heard from you and though I cannot flatter myself you can devote more than one half hour in a week to me yet I no sooner recieve one letter than I anxiously look forward to the time in which I think it probable I may recieve another...
I recieved your Kind favour of the 24th Yesterday morning never did a letter prove more welcome as I had suffer’d a great degree of anxiety at not hearing from you it is three weeks since the date of your last and I was very apprehensive your had been prevented from writing by indisposition I am wretched if you do not write me once a week at least to inform of your health—It is perhaps fancy...
