Yesterday was the first Saturday since I arrived here, which passed over without bringing me a letter from you; and although I am willing to hope that it may be owing to some delay at the Post-Office, or to some accident which prevented your writing at the usual time, I cannot help feeling some degree of uneasiness least the omission should have been caused by the state of your health—Indeed...
I expected to have this letter from Quincy, where it was my intention to have gone yesterday in the Stage— But it was to have called for me at Whitcomb’s where I still lodge, and by some mistake went away and left me. It was the cause of no small disappointment, as I had flattered myself with seeing our two darlings, for whom I had got a little book and a toy to give them from their Mama— But...
I wrote you this day week, last Sunday that I intended to return to Boston the next morning—But, I did not go untill Tuesday. I have been chiefly there untill yesterday afternoon when I came out in the Stage, and found the family here all well; and particularly both the children—The first thing John said to me was to enquire whether I had sent a kiss for him to Mamma—I cannot stay many days...
The Children are both in perfect health; both contented with their situations, and both beloved by all around them—George appears to have lost none of his sensibility, but has a placidness and ease of temper, which must have come to him I think from some of his Remote Ancestors—He reads tolerably well, and still prides himself as much as ever in his learning. He agrees very well with his...
I wrote you last Sunday, the day after my arrival at Quincy and gave you an account of the progress and termination of my journey from New-York. On Tuesday I went with my father to Cambridge to attend the inauguration of the new President of the College, Mr: Webber.—The ceremonies of the day were sufficiently dull—The performances mostly in Latin, with a comfortable proportion of English in...
The first pen I put to paper after reaching my journey’s end must be to inform you, my dearest friend, of that Event—I left New-York, at four O’Clock of the afternoon of the first of this Month; the same day that my last Letter to you was written—My Sister concluded to remain there with the Coll: at least for the present—Her prospects and those of her family, are of a gloomy cast, but I can...
Untill this day, I have been from the moment when I left you, in such continual motion that I have not had a moment of leisure to perform the promise I made, of writing to you on my way home—We had a rainy day from Washington to Baltimore, where I parted with Messrs: Tracy and Dana, on the moment of our arrival—Mr: McHenry having taken them both to his House—They were to come on two days...
I shall begin my Letter by putting your mind at ease respecting your children, who are both very well. George I saw yesterday quite in Raptures; his uncle Cranch had made him a little Sled with a small box upon the top; similar to one which Dexter had made John; and which employs half his time. Sometimes to draw about miss Juno, who seems to like the ride very well, and sits in it as grave and...
Your Letter of Jan’ry 6 I received last Evening. your Children are very well, and very well taken care of. so do not give yourself any anxious solisitude about them. I believe they are much better off than they could have been at any boarding House in washington, where they must have been confined in some degree; or have mixd with improper persons; with respect to John, the Child enjoys...
I received your Letter of december 6th on the 14th and was very glad to hear of your safe arrival at washington; the journey at this Season when the days are so short must always be fatigueing. It must have been less so to you than it would have been with the children, tho I doubt not you must miss them very much. they are very well. John is as thick as he is long, has out grown his cloaths....
The reason that you did not receive a Letter from me when you arrived at Philadelphia, was oweing to my being so sick that I could not write. I got your Brother to write, but not so soon as I should, if I had been able. as soon as I could hold my pen I wrote you a few lines, since which I have received your Letter from Newyork; I have rejoiced in the fine weather which has followed you ever...
I received two days since your Letter of Febry th 11. it containd information the most agreable that mr Adams was in better Health and Spirits is cheering news to me. I feared through want of attention to himself that his cough would fix upon his Lungs, and produce very allarming concequences—the time is fast approaching when Congress must rise, whether they have done good, or whether they...
Inclosed you have a Letter, to mr Rutledge which you may if you like send to your Brother if you think it will be of any service to him. We yesterday received a few lines from mr Adams of the 14th from which I learnt you were all in tolerable Health, I want to know if his cough has left him, and whether he has any thing of the Rheumatism in his Limbs. I would have him pay particular attention...
I received yesterday your Letter of Novbr 27th. and was rejoiced to learn that you and the Children were well. I was just contemplating writing a Letter to my son to chide him for not writing to inform me, how George was grown, and improved, what he said when he saw his pappa again, and how mister John came on, whether he is as grave as his Brother George was how Master Georges socks fitted...
I congratulate you my dear Louissa, that our loss is to be your gain. mr Adams leaves us on tuesday for washington, where I hope he will arrive in safety, and have a joyfull meeting with his family. I know from frequent experience how painfull it is to be thus seperated—I hope when he returns next Spring that you will be able to come with him, and that we may make Quincy an agreable residence...
This is the last Time I shall write you from this place for the present—I have determined to accelerate my departure, and not wait untill the 22d. as I had heretofore proposed—On Wednesday next it is my intention to take passage in the Stage for Providence, but as the Stages now commence on the Winter establishment I do not expect to reach New-York earlier than the 22d: There I purpose to stop...
Once more is the correspondence on the part of my best friend brought up from all arrears; as I received since my last your two letters, of the 16th: and 23d: ulto: both together—I hope we shall on neither side be in arrears again, as I still hold the purpose of leaving this place, at latest a fortnight from to-morrow—It will give me great pleasure to meet you at Baltimore; but I cannot...
After an interval of considerable anxiety, arising from the lapse of time, since I had heard from my dearest friend, I was at length at once confirmed in my apprehensions, and in some sort relieved from their alarm by your letter of the 14th: which however I did not receive untill the Evening before last—The Washington Post Mark on the cover was dated the 15th: but, I had sent into Boston to...
I am in hopes there is a letter from you, lingering somewhere, at the Post-Office; not having received any, since I wrote you last; nor of course heard from you of a later date than the 4th: of this month. I have not been from Quincy since my last; nor shall probably more than once or twice, before my departure to rejoin you—My present intention is to leave this place about the twenty-first of...
I hope the head-ache with which you were afflicted at the time when you wrote me your letter—of the 4th: which I have received, did not outlast that day, and that it left you ever since to enjoy good health and Spirits—Mine are at present as good as my situation will permit, and excepting the temporary inconveniences arising from too free a use of fruit, on the ripening of the peaches, have...
Since I wrote you last Tuesday in Boston I have received another letter from you, dated the 21st. of August, which has completed the satisfaction I enjoyed in the receipt of those which had preceded it— After a painful expectation of nearly three weeks, I was thus compensated by four letters in the course of as many days— I was not mistaken in my calculation upon your punctuality, but am still...
Two days ago, I wrote you my best friend, expressing great anxiety at not having heard from you for almost a month—I therefore now add a line to mention that I received last evening your two letters of the 5th: and 12th: of this month; by the latter of which it appears that you had again been a day or two longer than usual without hearing from me—I have never failed to write you every week,...
Another week has past away, without bringing me a line from my dearest friend—The last letter I have received from you was dated the 31st: of last month— I endeavour as much as possible to compose my mind with the hope that some accident at the Post–Office may have detained your letters since that time; but the thought that illness or some disaster must have befallen you or my dear children,...
It is almost a fortnight since I received a line from you; and you have heretofore been so invariably punctual in writing me at least once a week, that for some days I have felt not a little concern lest this interruption of correspondance should have been occasioned by illness either of yourself or of the children—I encourage hopes however as much as possible, and discard as far as within my...
I have received your letter of the 31st: of last month, with great pleasure to learn that the health of the children is better than it had been.—My anxiety for them, and especially for the youngest on hearing of his repeated illness has been so great as in some degree to affect my own health, and still more my Spirits—I depend however entirely upon you for their management, knowing and...
Your letter of 27 last month came to hand the day before yesterday—It renews and increases my concern for the health of the children, but as John’s teeth are now through, I indulge the flattering hope that he will entirely recover—We may reasonably hope that he will not again be troubled from the same cause, untill the severity of the Summer shall be past—But after all our hopes must rest...
The delays in the receipt of my letters, of which you complain are occasioned sometimes by a delay in sending them to the Post-Office, and sometimes must be accounted for by the Post-Office itself—I have oftentimes suffered the same impatience to hear from you, and last evening after having been nearly a fortnight without a line from you, received together your kind letters of the 13th: and...
My visit to Boston yesterday, was equally successful with those I had made several times before; for I found there your’s of the 9th: enclosing the profiles—I rejoyce to hear that your tour to Bladensburg has been of service to the health of the children—And I hope your visit to your aunt will prove equally so to them and to yourself. I sincerely sympathise with poor Pichon and his wife, at...
A tour to Boston appears of late to bring me luck; yesterday, for the third time within this fortnight, I went there and found a letter from you—This was dated the 4th: and was written the same day that I on my part was writing to you, as I hope you have by this time perceived.—This repeated pleasure has in a great measure removed the aversion I had before to visiting the metropolis, and I...
Yesterday, being in Boston on some business, I received your letter of the 26th: with the pleasing intelligence of the dear child’s recovery.—I had scarcely enjoyed a moment of unconcern since your first account of his illness; I hope his teeth have come through before this time, and that he will soon recover his strength so as to get upon his feet. At the same time with your letter I received...
