The account of your illness my dearest Maria was known to me only this morning. nothing but impossibilities prevent my instant departure to join you. but the impossibility of Congress proceeding a single step in my absence presents an insuperable bar. Mr. Eppes goes off, and I hope will find you in a convalescent state. next to the desire that it may be so, is that of being speedily informed...
I now return you, my dearest Maria, the paper which you lent me for mr Page, and which he has returned some days since. I have prevailed on Doctr. Priestly to undertake the work of which this is only the syllabus or plan. he says he can accomplish it in the course of a year. but in truth his health is so much impaired, and his body become so feeble, that there is reason to fear he will not...
A thousand joys to you, my dear Maria, on the happy accession to your family . a letter from our dear Martha by last post gave me the happy news that your crisis was happily over and all well. I had supposed that if you were a little later than your calculation, and the rising of Congress as early as we expected, that we might have been with you at the moment when it would have been so...
I recieved in due time yours & mr Eppes’s letters of Nov. 6. and his of Nov. 26 . this last informed me you would stay at Eppington 2. or 3. weeks. having had occasion to write during that time to mr F. Eppes, without knowing at the moment that you were there, you would of course know I was well. this with the unceasing press of business has prevented my writing to you. presuming this will...
A promise made to a friend some years ago, but executed only lately, has placed my religious creed on paper. I have thought it just that my family, by possessing this, should be enabled to estimate the libels published against me on this, as on every other possible subject. I have written to Philadelphia for Dr. Priestley’s history of the corruptions of Christianity , which I will send you, &...
It is very long since I have heard from Eppington. the last letter I [recieved?] was from mr Eppes dated Apr. 4. so long without hearing from you, I cannot be without uneasiness for your health. I have been constantly in the hope that we were within 3. or 4. weeks of rising, but so often disappointed I begin to lose my faith as to any period of adjournment; and some begin now openly to avow...
I am this moment arrived here, and the post being about to depart, I set down to inform you of it. your sister came over with me from Belmont where we left all well. the family will move over the day after tomorrow. they give up the house there about a week hence. we want nothing now to fill up our happiness but to have you & mr Eppes here. scarcely a stroke has been done towards covering the...
Your’s by John came safely to hand, and informs me of your ultimate arrival at Edgehill. mr Randolph’s letter from Gordon’s recieved the night before gave me the first certain intelligence I had recieved since your departure. a rumor had come here of your having been stopped two or three days at Bull run and in a miserable hovel; so that I had passed ten days in anxious uncertainty about you....
You will be surprised at receiving a letter from me dated here at this time. But a series of bad weather having suspended our works many days, has caused my detention. I have for some time had my trunk packed and issued my last orders, and been only waiting for it to cease raining. But it still rains. I have a bad prospect of rivers and roads before me. Your sister removed to Belmont about...
I arrived here on the 3d. inst. expecting to have found you here and we have been ever since imagining that every sound we heard was that of the carriage which was once more to bring us together. it was not till yesterday I learnt by the reciept of mr Eppes’s letter of June 30th. that you had been sick, and were only on the recovery at that date. a preceding letter of his, referred to in that...
