My Coach horses, having performed (faithfully & well) all the duties I have required of them, they are sent to you, agreeably to my promise; hoping they will be as serviceable to whomsoever they are committed, as they have been to me; and it is my wish that they may meet with a continuance of their former kind usage. As every moment of our time while we remain in this City, will be closely...
A Mail of last week brought me the honor of your favor, begun the 11th, and ended the 13th of this instant. Had it not been for one circumstance, which by the bye is a pretty material one—viz.—that I had no love letters to lose—the introductory without the explanatory part of your letter, would have caused a serious alarm; and might have tried how far my nerves were able to sustain the shock...
I thank you for the information contained in your note of this date —although I am not, nor have not been, under any apprehension of the desolating Fever.

The articles you had the goodness to send me this forenoon (when it was not in my power to acknowledge the receipt of them) came very safe, and I pray you again, to accept my thanks for the trouble I have given you in this business. Enclosed are Seventy five dollars, which is the nearest my present means will enable me to approach $74 50/100 the cost of them. Your letter to Mrs Law shall be...
I feel much obliged by your kind & polite invitation to dine with you to day, but am under the necessity of denying myself that pleasure. I had, previously to the receipt of your Card, resolved not to dine out of my lodgings while business should detain me in the City: and, in consequence, had declined Invitations from Mr Liston, and the Chevr de Freire. But a more conclusive reason than this,...
