I know not by what right or colour of right, I address you: but as the World agrees that you are Benevolence personified I presume upon that principle to introduce to you Mr Samuel Gilman, whose Accademical Education was in the Family of my beloved Sister, whose University Education was at Harvard Colledge, whose Genius has already exhibited very promising productions in verse and prose from...
I regret that your kind Letter of Oct. 11. has been so long unanswered. Mr Colman needed no recommendation or introduction from me to you. He is delighted with his Visit to Philadelphia and the liberal Society he found there. I will hazard Something to you. In my Opinion Something was wanting in Philadelphia, to irradiate the Solemn gloom of the religion of that City, on one hand: and to check...
Not to honour Mr Colman, for I know he needs none from me to you; but to gratify myself and bring me once more to your recollection—I write this line. He deserves to see all the greatest men and the best things, I Philadelphia; and I hope no narrow sentiments in religion or Politicks will prevent him. I am as always your friend MHi : Adams Family Papers, Letterbooks.

I am almost ashamed to trouble you on such a subject but depending on your kind and friendly disposition towards Mr. Adams and myself I am induced to request you will have the goodness to procure us a young woman strong and capable of work in the kitchen and house and a Boy to do the usual work in a family under an upper Servant from among the Swiss or German emigrants who are daily arriving I...
The German Woman and Boy you were so obliging to purchase for me arrived safe; and I return you many thanks for your goodness for having so readily undertaken and so perfectly executed your my Commission—Mr. Adams received your second Letter acknowledging the receipt of the money and unites with me in assurances of the highest Respect and esteem.

ALS : American Philosophical Society I received a Pacquet you were so good as to bring for me from Philadelphia; but it contains no Letters later than the 13th. of January. As the Ministry here received Letters at the same time, & I believe brought also by you, that are as late as the 4th of April, I cannot but be surpriz’d that we have no fresh Letters by the same Ship that you came in.— Can...
In reply to your letter of the 6th. Instant, I am to inform you, that the two draughts dated the 5th. July 1793 and drawn upon me at 30 days sight in your favor by Mr. Genet Minister Plenipotentiary of the Republic of France; the One for Four Hundred and Thirty one Dollars and Sixty Eight Cents and the Other for Two Thousand, five Hundred and thirty Nine Dollars and forty four Cents, will be...
A French gentleman (Monsr. De Rieux) a neighbor of mine whom I much esteem, having had a legacy left him by a relation in France, his friends, on account of the depreciation of their paper medium, thought it better to invest the money in goods, and to remit it in that way. They consisted in glass of various kinds, ribbons &c and were to leave Havre in May last addressed to Monsr. Hombert of...
I recieved last night your favor of the 20th. and I now inclose you Capt Elwood’s reciept for both boxes. the servant who carried them to the vessel says that the light box was put into the cabin (this is the one you have recieved,) & the heavy one into the hold, where it has perhaps been overlooked & may be yet found. this contained the Louisiana minerals.   I recieved by post the books you...
