Permit me to offer myself to your Excellency as a candidate for the Naval Office, or as Collector of the Customs for this district of Plymouth & Duxborough. Although I have not the honour of being personally known to your Excellency, yet you are well acquainted with my father’s merits in the late revolution, which may have some weight in granting to his family some of the honours to be derived...

A few weeks since I received an intimation from General Dearborn that you had determined to appoint me Collector for the Port of Marblehead: since which it has been publicly announced in the papers. Be pleased to suffer me at this moment, to express to you my grateful sentiments for your notice & attention—and the extreme regret I feel at declining the acceptance of any appointment with which...
I had the honor some months since to address a letter of thanks to you for the intended honor of an appointment as Collector for the Port of Marblehd. I recieved from General Dearborn an intimation of this your intention, & was highly flattered with your notice & consideration.

Through the medium of Judge Cushing’s family I have learnt that Cod’s tongues & sounds are a dish of which you are peculiarly fond.   I embrace the opportunity which this hint affords me to transmit a half barrel, which I believe are excellent, and have sent them by the Schooner Nightingale, Capt. Paine, bound up the Potomack, who has promised me to forward them safely.   I pray you, Sir, to...
The friendships of early youth never cease but with the dying breath.—“Tell my Dear Mrs: Adams to write me or see me very soon, else we only meet in Heaven”—was one of the last expressions of your departed friend & my ever to be respected mother.—Her constant, ardent, almost sisterly affection imposes it on me as an earliest duty to inform you that death has made another inroad on your...
Your letter of 22d Ulto: so marked with sensibility—so tender in expression, towards the offspring of the lovely friend, whose loss you so deeply deplore, excites the deep & ardent gratitude of myself—my brother & my wife.—the late call she had opportunity to make was delightfully satisfactory to her feelings & be will reiterated by me the first moment that can present itself.— Your assurances...
Permit me on the sad & melancholy annunciation of the papers of this day of the death of Mrs. Adams to address a line to you.—not of condolence—for you are beyond that,—but of sympathy. The irreparable breach in your domestic felicity can never be healed: the friendship of youth can never be restored. The loss of such a woman as Mrs: Adams society must ever deplore; how much more her partner,...
I have ever been led to believe that the Group , written in the early stage of the American revolution, was composed at your suggestion; & the manuscript copy in the hand writing of Mrs: M. Warren my mother, is one evidence of the fact: and some letters of yours to her on that subject are fully confirmatory of the authorship.—But having lately seen in print & in Ms: credit to have been given...
You having been chosen an honorary member of the Pilgrim Society of the Old Colony, & requested to attend the ensuing celebration of the Landing of the Fathers , I take liberty to address you a line on this occasion. The visits you formerly made here in professional character—in political views—& in private friendships, can never be forgotten: & could they be renewed, would recall many ancient...
