Mr Black got here on Thursday night. I was rejoiced to see him. It seemd next to being at home. I yesterday received your Letter of April 29th.

I am to drink tea on Board the Frigate United States this afternoon if the weather...
I was indeed greatly afflicted by the contents of your last Letter. I received it yesterday, and having a large party of Ladies and Gentlemen to dine, I felt but Little Spirit to receive or entertain them. I did not communicate it to the President untill the Evening when he insisted upon it, that I had some dissagreable News which had affected my Spirits. Least he should suppose it greater or...
