I inclose you a letter from my wife, who would have written you earlier but that George has been very ill with a fever, for several days—He is however, thank God now recovered. I have not written to you so often myself as I ought to have done, the only reason for which has been the ardour with which I have thoughtlessly thrown myself into the vortex of public business—The only object or use of...
We have not a printer in Boston who gives us any of the debates in either house of Congress: I have seen the National intelligencer for a few weeks past, I there read the debate which I presume was the cause of dr Eustice writing to mr. Jos’ Hall the following, “You will probably have heard of the Bold an independant manner in which JQA. voted away from his party, having gained credit with us...
I received two days ago your kind favour of the 3d: instt: and it was very precious as containing information of your health, and that of my father, and friends at Quincy.—I have been and am sensible of the inconvenience there would be in any free interchange of political sentiments upon the passing events, by a correspondence which must pass through the channel of the Post-Office—I believe...
I am indebted to you for two Letters Since I wrote to you. Your Letter of december 22d. I thank you for, as well as the other; to me your conduct wanted not any justification or explanation. I am fully Satisfied that you have weighed every measure, looking much further into concequences than those who censure and condemn. Yet I like to have some reasons to give to those who feel anxious upon...
I am sorry to say that I write you from my Sick Chamber, where I have been confined for near a week with the Severest attack of the Rhumatism which I have experienced for many years in my Limbs. I hope it will not be very durable, but submission is my lesson, and patience my Study. We last Evening received the Port Folio containing the Character of your much Loved Friend. I read it with a...
Your kind favour of the 10th: instt: came to hand last evening—And I would take this opportunity to request that all letters for me from Quincy, may be put in to the post-office there; without waiting to send them to Boston—I shall thus get them sooner—My own letters too I hope go directly to Quincy.—My brother I imagine will be satisfied with the frequency of my writing or inclosing papers to...
We have this day quite and old fashinnd Snow Storm, after an unusual pleasent Feb’ry. the Snow is much deeper and more drifted than we have had, for several winters. the wind very high at NorthEast; from our parlour windows the stone walls are not to be Seen. it began yesterday noon to snow. After evening, the wind rose, and has continued through the night, and to this time without abatement....
A few days since, I received your kind favour of 25. ulto: and am greatly rejoyced at the restoration of your health—But I have delayed answering it hitherto, because as the Session draws to a close, we find ourselves more driven for want of time; in addition to which we have had the extraordinary business of trying an impeachment, and I have been in trouble with illness in the family—Both the...
I am desirious of writing you a few lines just to assure you that I am able to hold a pen, and that I hope my Health is not in a more declining state than when you left me, altho I have not been able to leave my chamber since; except to ride a little way a few times; I think I have gained a little strength the last week tho I have not got the better of the most debilitating of my complaints—a...
I received some days since your kind letter of the 11th: of last month, and was delighted to find you had so far recovered as to be able to write—Since then I have been informed by my brother and Mr: Shaw, that your health continued improving and I sincerely pray to the great disposer of Events that it may be entirely restored and long continued, for your own comfort and the happiness of us...
