I have drawn upon you, this day, for three hundred Pounds Sterling, in favour of Mr John Osborne, on order which I pray you to accept and pay. I presume, that before this time, Sir Clement Cotterel Dormer, the Master of the Ceremonies, has paid that Sum into your hands for me.—But if he has not, I Should be obliged to you if you will call upon that Gentleman, and let him know that I have drawn...

Dr. Leonard will have the honour to inclose this Letter, which is merely to inform you that he came over in the Same ship with me, and that from all I have Seen or heard of him, he is a very honest and inoffensive Man.

I am much obliged to you, for your kind Congratulations on my Arrival, and Mrs Adams returns you her Compliments and Thanks. The Accession of Virginia, to the New Constitution is a great event.—You and I Should not materially differ, I fancy, if We were to compare Notes of a perfect Commonwealth.

Your mamma’s hand has been wholly unable to hold a pen, without exquisite pain, from the time of our arrival; and I am afraid your brothers have not done their duty in writing to you. Indeed, I scarcely know what apology to make for myself. Would you believe this is the first day that I have taken a pen into my hand since I came ashore? I am happy to hear from all quarters a good character of...

I have, to day, received your kind letter of the 7th, and the Valuable books that accompanied it; Mariana, Corio, and Ramsay, for which I most heartily thank you. I wish I could write romances. True histories of my wanderings and waitings for ships and winds at Ferol and Corunna in Spain; at Nantes, Lorient and Brest in France; at Helvoet, the island of Goree, and Over Flackee in Holland; and...
If ever there was any philosophic solitude, your two friends have found it in this place, where we have been wind bound, a whole week, without a creature to speak to. Our whole business, pleasure and amusement has been reading Necker’s Religious Opinions, Hayley’s Old Maids, and Cumberland’s fourth Observer. Our whole stock is now exhausted, and if the ship should not arrive with a fresh...
The letter of Recall, herewith enclosed never reached my hand till this Moment when I was ready to step into the Carriage for Portsmouth where I am to embark. Its omission in Season, was wholly owing to the sickness of Mr Jay, our Secretary of State for foreign affairs. With great / Truth and Respect I have the Honour / to be, my Lord, your Lordships / most obedient and most humble / Servant...
