John Adams to Thomas Boylston Adams

Phila. May 5. 1796

My Dear Thomas

I am extreamly sorry to hear that you have been ill of your old Complaint: but was somewhat consoled at the same time by hearing you were better. Exercise of Walking or riding will be your Life in Holland.

Our Affairs are assuming a face of good Humour which is very pleasant after so long a storm. We shall have Peace and good Govt for some Years I hope—

I long to learn your Intentions about coming home or staying in Europe.

In a certain Event I might want you more than ever. I am yours / Affectionatly

John Adams
