Since my last, I have received your favours of 3d, 26th, 27th. 29th: May, and 12th: June. By your very kind and constant attention I find myself as regularly and recently informed of the current Events in our Country, as I could expect or wish—Your pamphlets and papers too, with those which I receive from the department of State are a treasure to me—I have written to the Secretary of State,...
A few days ago, I received your favours of 27. April and 15. May; together. The latter was forwarded from England by Mr Treat, and had on its passage been inspected by the officer of a french privateer. With respect to the changes of the heads of departments, I have not the means of forming a judgment—That they were necessary I can as little doubt, as I can avoid lamenting that necessity.—If...
SINCE the date of my last I have received your favour of 8. April, with the pamphlets mentioned in it.—The communications of the American Commissioners have resounded through every part of Europe , and produced a very sensible impression in the public opinion with regard to the characters exposed in them.—An attempt at defence has been made, by a publication in the official newspaper of the...
I received a few days ago your kind favour of 14 July, forwarded by the Secretary of State and at the same time a letter for my wife, from Mrs. Johnson.—The accounts from home continue to discover a spirit truly worthy of the American name, a spirit which I earnestly hope may support itself in all the vigour through the severe trial which it must undergo, and which if thus supported, will...
Three more letters from you of 3. 4. and 13. April, brought to England by Mr Thornton, have just this moment come to hand, together with a pamphlet or two.—The message to Congress of 3. April together with all the documents accompanying it, have been published in London, from whence I have received them as mentioned in a former letter. They were received from Philadelphia by the Directory on...
My brother is no longer with me. Eight days ago he left me to take somewhat of a circuitous route to Hamburg, from whence he embarks for America, and where I hope within two months from this date, he will deliver you the present Letter.—He had been for rather more than four years, (with two short intervals) my constant companion.—I had neither a thought nor a paper, upon any subject, public or...
After a long period of deep concern, and anxiety, on account of your health, I feel myself in some measure relieved by the receipt of your kind letter of 2nd Decr:, which I received the day before yesterday, that which you mention as having written me on the 15th of November, has not yet come to hand. At the same time, I received from Mr. Pitcairn at Hamburg a line, mentioning, that the vessel...
I received not untill last Evening your kind favour of Feby: 10. which however is the latest date that I have from you, and this circumstance is of itself sufficient to give me great concern respecting the State of your health—The Boston Newspapers in April, mention likewise that you were again ill; but I have some comfort in hearing by a letter from Dr: Welsh to his Son, that you were again...
I have to acknowledge the receipt since I wrote you last of your two kind favours of 15. November and 1. February last—The latter is the latest letter, from America that I have, and I still continue to receive as I have ever since I have been in Europe, received from you the most recent intelligence both public and private. As in this case the first direct notice of my brother’s arrival came...
I received at Töplitz, on the 3d: of last month, your kind favour of 12. June, which I did not immediately answer, because I was then in bed, with a fever, which however confined me, only for about ten days, and since then my health has again been very good.—The principal motive of our Journey to Töplitz, I wrote you before I left Berlin. It was on account of my wife’s health, and with the...
The latest letters I have had the pleasure of receiving from you are of January 5. and Feby 8. But Mr: Paleske has arrived at London on his way hither, and I expect to see him here in the course of a few days—He informs me that he has letters for me from you. A longer time has elapsed since I wrote you last than I can apologize for with propriety; it is possible that at some future day I may...
A few days ago, I received your favour of 30. December of the last year; after a long interval during which I had not heard from you; and the communication with England from Hamburg having been for six weeks interrupted by the severity of the season, I was nearly the whole of that time without receiving any information from America—When it came at last, it was in one respect, of a nature...
I have a day or two since received your favour of 10. Feby; by which I perceive that my last Letters from London had reached you, though I know not what was the fate of several that preceded them, and none of those which I wrote from this place had come to hand. I have not however since my arrival here been altogether negligent, and I hope that before this time you have received the proofs of...
Mr: Paleske arrived here a few days after I wrote you last, and delivered me your letter and the pamphlets together with the dispatches from the Secretary of State, and the letters to my wife; which were extremely acceptable to her, as she had been so long without hearing from her parents. I was much gratified by your anecdotes respecting the proceedings in the Senate upon the Treaty—The...
I have received within these few days your letters of the 17th: and 29th: of March, together with the books and pamphlets mentioned in the former.

I have written to you and elsewhere...

April—not however by the way of Bremen but from Hamburg, though I had just received another packet from the State department of the same date, from the Consul at Bremen. With your last came likewise other letters of a date as recent as 7, May. one of them from you to my brother.—For your pamphlets and newspapers likewise I have to renew my thanks. I am...
I will not let a vessel Sail for Hamburgh that I know of, without taking a few Lines from me, if it be only to inform you of the State of my Health, which I know you are affectionately interested in.

Inclosed is the Act which I mentiond in my Letter of the 26. It yesterday received the presidents Signature & tho not all it ought to be , it is a Step towards it, and if our Envoys were but out of the French dominions, much more decisive measures would be persued.
