There is in Boston, a Lemmon-tree of a peculiar kind, called the Sweet Lemmon, Sent to your Grandfather, by a gentleman from Malaga—and I expect it will be in the custody of our friend Mr J H Foster, by Tomorrow. Your Grandfather is desirous of presenting this plant to the Botanical garden, in Cambridge, and wishes you to call on Mr: Peck the Professor, with his compliments, tendering the Tree...
I have reflected with mingled emotions of filial tenderness and respect upon the proposal you made me, yesterday, to take up my abode with you and to make one family of your’s and mine. As a proposal of such a nature, would not be proper on my part, it is my duty to consider it and to answer it, as made by you. And I prefer the freedom of epistolary communication on this occasion to oral,...
Under an expectation that after our personal interview at Cambridge, you would provide yourself with the Article of dress which you required, and a new Hat, at Mr Fairbanks’s, I have been less urgent to answer your Note which was received and acknowledged by your Aunt, in my absence from Quincy. I have now only to Say, that whatever Garments you or your brother may want, if not, like yours, of...

She died about One oClock, PM, of Wednesday the 28th: ult: after an illness of three weeks and three days; but we did not think her case dangerous until the last week. but Her decline from this day week was very rapid, and she sunk into the arms of the great destroyer without...
The enclosed letter from President Kirkland to me was received yesterday, though dated the 20th. A letter from the City of Washington might have reached me in nearly the same time. My reply to the President is enclosed for your perusal, and approbation if you think it entitled, and for your correction if you think it requires any. Having been present when the address was delivered, before the...
When I borrow a sentiment from Machiavel’s “plan of a perfect Commonwealth” to accompany my congratulations and to participate in the joyful issue of the greatest spectacle which the Christian World has ever beheld, I cannot with hold my admiration of the aptness of the quotation for the occasion to which I would make it subservient, should it reach you on the day of your induction to the...
Your letter of the 26th: Ulto. in answer to mine of the 21st: came to hand on the 1st: Instant; and I have barely time to acknowledge it now. The Examination has probably begun by this, and you will have your time and attention so fully occupied that letters to answer might prove an incumbrance. We have experienced so great & sudden fluctuations in the weather within the last ten days, as to...
Your letter of the 24th ulto. was received this morning with much pleasure, and as your Mother wrote to you yesterday, I cannot let pass this, without an acknowledgment, that the account you give us of your standing in the Class, in various branches, is quite encouraging. I have frequently spoken to you of the good opinion I have always cherished of Mathematical Science, and lamented my own...
Your last letter 24th: 5th ulto: came to hand on New Year’s day, and was the most acceptable compliment that I received. Indeed it was the only favour brought by the Mail, that diffused joy, as it acquainted us with the safe arrival of Charles, notwithstanding the weather. Mrs Clarke received the tidings of the death of her Sister Maria Clarke, which, though not unexpected, has sadden’d her...
You was kind enough to send me a Copy of the Message, for which I thank you. By an arrangement made with my Nephew, Mr J Adams, I receive the documents and Mr Hobart has forwarded a set to my Father. I do not remember ever to have read abler state papers from each department. As you are well acquainted with the forms of Office, I wish to call your attention to an application I made to the...
