ALS : University of Pennsylvania Library; incomplete AL (draft): American Philosophical Society; incomplete AL (draft): James S. Bradford, Philadelphia (1956) I yesterday received yours of the 13th April, and as Mr Hodgson, in the note which inclosed it, offers to forward an answer I sit down to write one, tho’ I wrote to you last saturday by Mr W. to acknowledge that which he brought us from...
ALS : American Philosophical Society So few opportunities offer to convey a letter to you that I must seize the present to acknowledge the receipt of a letter from you addrest to my mother and me last December. I cannot tell by whom it came as it was put into the post; the rest of the superscription being in an unknown hand. We shall always be happy to hear from you, therefore whenever you...
ALS : American Philosophical Society My mother promis’d Lord Drummond to send a letter to you by him, she deputed Mr. Williams to write it for her, but as he has already written by this Vessel he desir’d me to do it. I pleaded being very sleepy and stupid, they said writing would rouse and enliven me, I do not find they said true, however, I will write on. I have the pleasure to tell you that...
ALS : James S. Bradford (Philadelphia, 1956) A whole year has elapsed since we received one line from you. Perhaps you mean to drop all correspondence with us, but we will not let you off quite so easy as you may think, for whenever an opportunity offers I shall send you a letter. Being this morning informed by an old friend of ours that a young lady would set out in a few days to Paris I take...
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 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 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...
