AL : American Philosophical Society I called this morning upon Dr. Ingenhousz who told me he had a letter from you lately, and that you were well; this gave me pleasure and will enable me to communicate pleasure to my mother when I return to her tomorrow. We are mortified that we so seldom get a line from you, and cannot help suspecting that our letters are intercepted. I received notice from...
AL : American Philosophical Society About a month ago I received a letter from you without a date, for which accept my thanks. We were happy to hear you were well, but my mother was much mortified that your letter was not addrest to her; it appears to me of no importance which of our names is superscribed, to her it is of great. However, you hurt her, not only by not writing to her...
ALS : American Philosophical Society I left Cheam yesterday morning, my mother and children all well. My mother received your letter the day before, inclosed in one from young Alexander, informing her that his father was returned, and he should join him in a few days at Calais. I brought your milk pot, & lodged it at Mr Lechmere’s and wrote to Mr Alexander desiring him to take charge of it....
ALS : American Philosophical Society I received eleven little books for which I thank you. But why was there not one line with them? My poor mother was much disappointed, and I believe imagined that I did not speak truth when I told her there was no letter in the parcel. I know you will pay the tribute of a sigh for the loss of one who loved you with the most ardent affection. She lingered...
ALS : American Philosophical Society As I was yesterday informed that my letter of thursday was not then gone I sit down now to make a little addition, fancying that I have not said all I have to say, for I wrote in haste. I think I gave you my family history pretty fully, as to public concerns, I know nothing, nor should I write of them to you if I knew anything, so I will give you some...
ALS : American Philosophical Society We rejoice in these frequent opportunities of hearing from you. Mr Oswald brought your letter to day; I had not the pleasure of seeing him, but my mother had. As he offered to take an answer, I sit down just to give you a line to tell you we are all well; my mother has been very ill since I wrote last, but is quite recovered. I think she seems to have given...
ALS : American Philosophical Society By not being inform’d in proper time I have miss’d several opportunities of writing to you, which I regret because I wish to live in your memory, and to convince you that you are in mine. Do not sigh at the addition I make to the packet, for I ask no return, you have enough to do without scribbling to me, and my letters you may lay by till you have a few...
ALS : American Philosophical Society It is long since we had a line from you, but we have sometimes heard of you; to hear you are well gives us pleasure. Though you do not write I trust you do not forget us, nor wish us to forget you, therefore I take this favourable opportunity of sending you a long letter, such I intend it to be, for I fancy I have a great deal to say, as it is so long since...
ALS : American Philosophical Society Time will not permit to give you more than a hasty line. Accept the resemblance I send you of one whom you esteemed, and do me the favour to give one to Mlle. Beeheron, and another to M. Dubourg. I feel so much the honour of the reception he gave to the books that it makes me presume upon this being no unacceptable present. Your affectionate When you have...
