Orange Aug: 18. 94. I recd. some days ago your ⟨p⟩recious favor from Fredg. I can not express, but hope you will conceive the joy it gave me: The delay in hearing of your leaving Ha⟨n⟩over which I regarded as the only ⟨s⟩atisfactory proof of your recove⟨r⟩y, had filled me with extreme ⟨… dis⟩quietude, and the co⟨mmun⟩ication of the welcome event was ⟨e⟩ndeared to me by the stile in which it...
Neither the chart of your uncle, or the memory of your brother could save me from two errors on our way down, we made out, notwithstanding to reach Town before sunset. I found at Mr. Watson’s a room prepared for me, and an empty one immediately over it, but they are both in a style much inferior to what I had hoped. You must consequently lower your expectations on this subj[e]ct as much as...
We reached the end of our journey yesterday at one o’clock; without interruption of any sort on the road. Mr. Coles had been here sometime, one, if not two of the expected dispatch vessels of England, had just arrived, and Mr. Gilston after a short passage from France, entered Washington about the moment I did. You may guess therefore the volumes of papers before us. I am but just dipping into...
I hope you receid., my dearest, a letter written by the last Mail. I write this in haste just to tell you that P. & myself are well; & that I am making exertions to get thro’ the necessary business, with a hope of setting out on my return tomorrow. It is very possible however that I may be detained till friday Morning. I send you all the foreign news in the inclosed papers. That from France...
We arrived here about half an hour by sun. We had a hot ride, but have not suffered from it. The ladies enquired affectionately after you, and recd. the message with which you charged me. None of the deputies were with Mr. Jefferson. We set out this forenoon for Mr. Divers, with whom we shall dine & pass the night, and tomorrow morning proceed for Rockfish Gap. I fear I shall not have an...
My dearest here we are snug in a warm room consoling ourselves on our escape from the Storm, by our safe arrival, mine about 2 O.C. yesterday, Mr. Monroe’s last night. We found the road so good that it was difficult to avoid getting to Mr Nelson’s too soon. We found them well except young Mrs. N. whose indisposition tho’ not serious, suspended, if nothing more, the trip below. Mr Monroe set...
My dearest. My last was so full that it has left me little to add General Cocke joined on tuesday afternoon which makes up a board, but we are chiefly engaged with the Examinations, which go on very well. I fear it will be impossible to get away before the middle of next week. I need not say how anxious I am to be with you. We have dined every day from home since we arrived except the first &...
I wrote you my beloved by the mail of tuesday, and hoped it would be the last from this place, with fears however that overbalanced hope. It appears now not to be certain that I shall be able to get away even tomorrow (friday). Every exertion however will be made to effect it. The Examinations, did not close till last night, and our attendance on them left the other business undone during that...
My dearest, We made out to get to Mr. Goodwins by 5 OC. where we luckily fell in with Genl. Cocke. After consultation as to our lodging &c at the University, he was left to make the arrangements on his arrival, which would be that evening. On our reaching the University the morning after, we found, much to our satisfaction that he had provided by treaty with Mr Brokenborugh, that we shd. all...
I recd yesterday morning, your welcome letter of Saturday evening. I hope you recd. in due time my two last, the latter of which will have dissipated any doubts as to the degree of my indisposition. As I hoped, my health has continued to strengthen. I joined the Board yesterday, and am well enough today for the ride home if the business were over. But this is not the case and I fear a...
