116th. (Adams Papers)
Dined at Mr. White’s. His Son and Mr. Soughton with their Ladies, were there. Spent all the afternoon; and when I return’d home, I found, B. Duncan, and her two Brothers with, our sweet Nancy, who play’d with James, as amiably and as innocently, as if they were both in their first or second lustre. Betsey was reading, the Night Thoughts, and I recommended to her perusal the 5th and 6th....
It is with the greatest reluctance, most honor ble: Sir! that Your continuing Silence, forces me to incumber You again, to weary Your patience, with Sollicitations of which Your Excellency knows too well, that they ought to be granted, because it is Salary, made by Your own agreement, and for which I have Served. Your Excellency will be graciously pleased, to consider that it is too hard to be...

Friday 16th. Thermometer at 50 in the Morng. 56 at Noon and 56 at Night. Rainy Morning and an Easterly wind, but not much of it. Drizzling all day and towards Night it began to rain again and threatned a wet Night. Very light wind all day. Before dinner Joseph Hickman, another of my Tenants from Frederick came in, to whom and those that came yesterday and Williams, I passed Leases for the Land...
Since I wrote you last I have received your letter of the 28th of Novr—Although you could not make out an exact settlement of the Accts, as they stand between the Tenants and me, I wish you had returned me a list of them, and the Lotts on which they live, with the Rent each man pays. I see no advantage that is to be derived now, from my being on the Tenemants. As you have power, and your...
I should have had the honour of addressing your Excellency before, had I sooner receiv’d the enclosed, by the date of which, I must hope that the Case is all ready arrived at Mount Vernon, and its content free from damage. That the Pictures may meet with an endulgent reception has been my hope, and my ambittion, that they may be honour’d with some degree of approbation, by your Excelly and Mrs...
I have just returned from Richmond where I was happy enough to succeed in my application to the Legislature. For this success I acknowledge myself indebted, in some measure, to your politeness. Should the same success attend me in the States of Delaware & New York, my whole plan will be accomplished; & if on my return to the Northern States, I find myself in tolerably easy circumstances, I...
Vous serés peut-etre surpris de vous voir paraitre la presente Lettre d’un Incognito, qui n’a pas L’honneur d’Etre connus de vous; mais qui a cependant celui de vous connoître par La renommée que vous vous etes acquise dans l’Europe par cet Esprit de Patriotisme, par La Sublimité de vos talens, et par cette noble fermeté dont vous avés triomphé de tous Les obstacles de vos Ennemis....
