You cannot imagine, the Anxiety I have felt on your Account, nor the Pleasure just received from your Letter of Feb. 1. I had heard nothing of you Since the Beginning of December when you was in Stockholm, and then only by the public Papers. When you arrive at the Hague, you may take your Choice, either to remain there and follow your Studies under the Direction of Mr. Dumas or go to Leyden to...
21783 Tuesday. Feb. 18. (Adams Papers)
Received a Letter from my Son John, dated at Gottenburgh the 1. of Feb. This Letter gave me great Joy, it is the first I have received from him since he left Petersbourg, and the first News I have had of him since the Beginning of December, when he was at Stockholm.— I have suffered extream Anxiety on his Account.

The Bearer of this, D r. John Wheelock, is President of an Institution in America, which is founded upon good Principles and deserves Encouragement.

618th. Tuesd. (Adams Papers)
Mr. Schiebe and I have engaged places in the vessel that is to sail for Kiel but the wind is contrary at present. This day I went and carried a letter of Introduction I had for Mr. Soeren Lycke a merchant of this town. I walk’d about the town in the afternoon with Count Greco. In the evening we went to a Coffee House.
ALS : American Philosophical Society Look my dear Sir at the place from whence this letter is dated— have you forgot it? I am sure you have not.—have you forgot the many pleasant hours you have passed here? No, you have not. Have you forgot your throwing oil on the Pond near me, and instantly smoothing the troubled Water—impossible! But a far, infinitely far greater object rises before me! Tis...
ALS : American Philosophical Society Je prends trop d’interet a vôtre victoire complète sur les ennemis des insurgens, victoire de laquelle vous êtes de ma connoissance le principal auteur, pour ne pas vous en marquer ma joye. J’ay vu le commencement, la continuation, et la fin de cette guerre par votre sagesse; et l’on peut dire que vous êtes l’auteur d’un peuple nouveau. Je remercie le...
ALS : American Philosophical Society You was entitled to a Civick crown on my account a great many years ago when at the University of St. Andrews you gave a turn to the carreer of a disorder which then threatned my Life.

I am really concerned, that we have been obliged to close this contract, on the execessive high terms agreed to, but the circumstances, under which we had...
