I had not intended to have written You to day, having this morning closed a Letter to your Brother, and told him all I had then to communicate, but the post of this day brought me some Letters from my dear Louisa’s mamma, and it is with great pleasure I inclose them to you, and wish them a safe arrival I know how good and how sweet it is to hear from our far distant Friends; Scarcly a week...
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...
I am loth a vessel should sail without a few lines from me, and the Secretary of State is very good to inform me of every opportunity, and tho I have not received any Letter since I wrote you last, which was on the 4th or 5th of this month, I will acknowledge one for your Father, dated 17 Febry. the duplicate of which the original is not yet come, No 53. A Letter for your Brother accompanied...
As the vessel by which I have already written to you, did not sail yesterday, I can now inform you that the Bill for the protection of our commerce past yesterday in the House of Rep’s 50 to 40. It impowers our vessels of war to capture, and bring in all French cruizers and privateers which shall be found hovering upon our coast. It will pass into a Law tomorrow. We are still in the dark why...
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. It really seem’s to us, as if they were infatuated. Many of our vessels which came out under convoy have safely arrived. The St...
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. The last was forwarded to me from England by Mr: King, and at the same time one from the Secretary of State of the 10th: ulto:—I had long been without letters, and they have now been pouring in by floods at once. I have written to you and elsewhere...
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...
The June packet is to sail tomorrow, As I know you must be anxious for constant intelligence at this critical & important period I will not let her sail without writing to you, tho it is a hazard whether she will go safe, for our very coasts are infested with French privateers, who insult us in our own Waters. Every exertion is making to get our Frigates to Sea. We have some 20 Gun vessels...
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...

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...
