I have recd yours of 18th and none later... Your Company here is much desired by every body: but by none so much as me. My Occupation in Business is so incessant, that I could have little time to pass with you—but that little every day would be prescious and invaluable. You express a Willingness to come on: but the thought of your attempting it without consulting your Friends and Physicians,...
Your Letter of the 25 Nov. has revived my heart. I rejoice at Your real Recovery and hope it will be confirmed so that you may with the Advice of your Physicians come on this Winter to me. But I cannot bear the thought of your Attempting it, without their Consent. I am of Opinion with our Neighbours about the Barn. Barlow to Baldwin I have seen and despise the Letter as much as I have for some...
My last Letter from you was of the 25 of Nov. I have been anxious least you might have taken cold by too early an Attempt to go to Church and ride out. But I hope for a Letter to Day. I am almost afraid to send you the enclosed Letters. Yet I think I ought not to withold them. I hope every day to hear of our dear Thomas’s Arrival. I have had a cold as usual upon coming to this place: but...
Your Letters of Nov. 29, Dec. 2. and 3 affect me very tenderly. The low Spirits, Effects of long and exhausting Sickness are apparent: but these are Evils of a serious nature. I pray you to banish as much as possible all Gloomy Thoughts and be very cautious to avoid every thing which may endanger a return of your old Disorders. To reconcile you to your fate I have a great mind to give you a...
Rejoice with me, that I have this Day finished my Ceremonies with the two Houses. Their Answers to the Speech have been civil and I have given them civil Replies. My St. Anthonys fire attacked me again after I had been here a few days—But it has given me no Pain and is better—almost gone off. It must be the Air or Water of this place that gives it me. The H. of R. will dispute about the Alien...
With a great deal of snow upon the Ground it is now plentifully snowing. There must be an unusual Quantity upon the Earth. I suppose you have it very deep. Our Men and Teams must have had a terrible Jobb to get the Lumber home: but I hope it is all compleated e’er this. To Day at two Dr. Ewing & Mr. Snowden are to dine with me and tomorrow at four about 30 Senators and Reps...I have not had as...
I have received your Letters of 10. 15. and 16. Your solicitude for my Health may Subside. I am pretty well—I had a cold, not a bad one, and something of the Inflammation in my face of last Spring, but it is gone. Rush gave me such a Dose of Salts that I thought it not fit to go out to Congress next day. But the day after I was well enough...I am Old—Old very Old and never shall be very...
I have rode in the Coaches with Mr Shaw over Grays Ferry and round by Hamiltons Woodlands over the Upper Ferry home, about ten miles Kiggin says. more beautifull Slaying never was seen. The snow not as with you excessively deep, but enough to cover all the Earth and deep enough to afford a very smooth path and beautifully white as Innocence itself. Yet the sun melts the Snow and it runs from...
I hope you have health enough to bear to share with me some of my Griefs. I have determined to do a Thing this day, which puts my Phylosophy to a Tryal. The Lt Gen. and Major Generals have recommended Col Smith to the Command of a Regiment. This is a Degradation of him to which I would not consent, without his Consent. I have written to him hoping that he would forbid the nomination. But his...
If I had the Logodiarrhea, you would hear from me oftener than you do. When Thomas leaves me, which will be some day this Week, I shall be more Solitary in my own Judgment than ever. But I must let him go to see you, both to gratify him and cure you. After he shall have been some time at Quincy I hope to hear that your health is quite established. He seems determined to settle in Phyladelphia...
