I have a brother, who wishes to obtain a commission in the army of the United States. He has forwarded to me an application to the War-Office, which I wished to accompany with a letter of my own in his behalf to the President; but as I am wholly unknown to the government, I take the liberty to ask from you a line to them, stating merely your belief in my veracity. If you should find it in your...
I intend to begin my journey on monday next and as my object is not less to see men than things, may I avail myself, of your kind offer of letters to Mr King and Mr Jay. Mr Jay lives a little off the stage road between New Haven and New York and I shall very willingly go out of my way to find him. May I likewise ask the favour of Mrs. A’s letter to Mrs Rush, since it will be interesting to me...
I rely upon your candour to forgive my taking your time and your patience, while I thank you for the many and great advantages which I have derived from your letters to this city. I find Mr Vaughan one of the most active beings that I have ever met with, full of good sense, intelligence and enlivening anecdote, and ready and disposed to minister in every possible way to my ease and...
I have made repeated appointments and attempts to visit you, since you did us the favour of your company; but my professional and parochial duties, which have been much increased of late, have confined me entirely at home for the last two months.—I avail myself however of this opportunity to forward you the third volume of Search’s Light of Nature, persuaded that his chapter entitled, “The...
You know my vanity and therefore are probably surprized that I have not before this transmitted you a journal of my travels; now do not condemn me too soon nor at any rate too severely but let it mitigate my sentence to recollect that Mrs. Adams herself invited this freedom and that I avail myself of the honor and kindness of that permission. I shall always consider myself, my dear Sir, under...
I fear you must have thought me inattentive to your request that I would ascertain the requisitions for admission into the Sophomore and Junior Classes at Harvard University;—I immediately procured a copy of the College Laws, expecting to find the course of Studies prescribed in them but was disappointed; I then applied to Mr A. Norton and Prof. Ware on the subject, and from the former...
I fear that you must have thought me unmindful of my engagement to forward you a copy of a most curious production, the Century sermon, which I mentioned to you, but on my return I found that the first edition was out of print; a second edition however has been published and I have addressed a copy to you by this mail. With it is a copy of Buckminster’s Sermons, which Mrs. Madison was kind...
I take the liberty of sending you my Election Sermon; your silent approbation of which, if I felt confident that I should obtain it, would be the highest reward to which I aspire. The subject belongs to you, as furnishing one of the brightest and most illustrious examples of true, and inflexible and devoted patriotism which has honored this or any other age. I wished to have said this in the...
I have just learnt by this morning’s mail, with heartfelt grief, the death of Mrs Adams. I have looked with trembling solicitude upon every obituary since I left home, yet this painful intelligence from its delay was at last unexpected. I am deeply afflicted and feel that I have lost one of my best and one of my most revered and valued friends. I esteem it one of the greatest blessings of my...
I regret very much that the enclosed is not more worthy of your acceptance by being more worthy of its lamented Subject. I hope you will not be displeased with it; but accept it as a small expression of my sincere veneration for the departed and my unfeigned Sympathy in your deep afflictions— I am, my Dear Sir, / with the highest respect / yr obliged & obed sert P.S.
