As Mr A. must go out in the Morning with the stage he cannot have any other opportunity of seeing Mr Trumbull and he should long regret the necessity of passing through Hartford without it.

I am at length determined to omit no longer to write to you.—You read yourself to death. this let me tell you, is a Sin and a crime.

In one of your Letters you once expressed a Wish to know Some Circumstances of the Negotiation of Peace, which might serve to shew whether Mr Jay brought me over to his opinion that We ought not to treat with Mr Oswald, without a Commission to treat with The United States, or whether I brought him over to mine. The inclosed Copies of Letters to Congress, to Vergennes and to Mr Jay himself will...
I have been so much of an Antiœconomist as to leave your Letter of June the fifth unanswered to this day. The Defence of the American Constitutions, is not I apprehend a “Misnomer.” Had the Patriots of Amsterdam repulsed the Duke of Brunswick from the Haerlem Gate, an History of the Action, might have properly been called an Account of the Defence of Amsterdam: although the City, on the Side...
Col. Wadsworth, upon my inquiring after your health gave me the most agreable and favourable account of it, I have heard for a long time. It rejoiced me very much: and the Information he gave me of your present occupation, in preparing for the Press a new Edition of your Writings, gave me more pleasure than any thing I could have heard of you next to the perfect restoration of your health and...

Inclosed are twenty Dollars, in a Bank Bill which I must beg the favour of you to apply to the payment of his demand. And will you be so good as to Subscribe The Vice President for the Hartford Paper, and get the Printer to address it to...
On Saturday night, Mr. John Quincy Adams my Son, and no doubt your friend, brought me from Boston your letter of the 25th. of Feb. returned by the Pact. from Philadelphia. I thank you Sir for your friendly congratulations, which with Some others contribute, not a little to animate me, under the dull Aspect of jolting journeys and tedious sessions which in my old Age would otherwise be rather...
Are you acquainted with the natural History of Mother Careys Chickens ? I know not the Latin Name of these chattering Birds, having never consulted the Dictionaire D’Histoire naturelle, nor Buffon nor Tournefort for information concerning this important Subject: but as a Mariner I have had frequent Occasion to curse the rascally Species of Mischief makers. In the calmest Moments at Sea, they...
Coll Humphreys, at the Service this morning, delivered me your kind Letter of Feb. 6, for the favour of which you cannot imagine how much I am obliged to you.—Not less delighted with your frank communications respecting your own affairs, than Satisfyed with your friendly cautions to me, I shall make a kind of Commentary, or at least some marginal Notes upon both. I rejoice in your health, and...
The Secy. of the Treasury is so able and has done so well that I have Scarcely permitted myself to think very closely whether he could or could not have done better. I may venture however to Say to you, that I have always been of your Opinion, that a System a little bolder would have been more Safe: and that it would have been better to have begun at once with a small direct Tax, a pretty...
Your Letter of Feb. 6. has made so deep an Impression that it may not be amiss to make a few more Observations on it as it respects both of Us. Your Friends have been very indiscreet and certainly have not done you Justice.—Fluency and Animation are Talents of a public Speaker which alone will go a great way. I have known several rise to Fame and extensive Practice, at the Bar, and afterwards...
Your favour of March 30. and Ap. 17. came to hand last night. By the “attack in Metre” you mean I suppose, that written by Ned. Church, a Cockfighting Cousin and Companion of Charles Jarvis a devoted Instrument of Mr H.—Jarvis’s Mother was a Church.—This Fellow, this Ned Church, I know nothing of—I scarcely ever spoke to him in my Life.—His Traitorous Brother, I knew very well; and the Vendue...
I am again obliged by your favour of the 14. Ult.—Will you be so good as to tell me whether your Mother was of the Family of Stoddards of Northampton. a Col Stoddard of that Town has left a Splendid Reputation.—I know very little of the Poet J. Adams but have heard that his father was of Newfoundland I think. Hannah Adams the author of a famous Book upon religious Sects which I have never Seen...
