[ Paris, July 1787 ], “tuesday afternoon.” Received that morning the packet TJ forwarded and his letter; thanks him for his offer and will remember the kindness even though there is little occasion to make use of it.

7[July 1787] (Adams Papers)
Attended Mr. Wibird all day: in the afternoon, four children were baptised. We remain’d after meeting to hear the singing. Read some of Bolingbroke’s metaphysical speculation in the evening. Dull times. Miss Betsey and her brother pass’d the afternoon at Mrs. Quincy’s. I was quite indolent and idle almost all day. I was walking alone in the church-yard, rambling through the grass which waves...

I returned about three weeks ago from a very useless voiage, useless, I mean, as to the object which first suggested it, that of trying the effect of the mineral waters of Aix en Provence on my hand. I tried these because recommended among six or eight others as equally beneficial, & because they would place me at the beginning of a tour to the seaports of Marseilles, Bourdeaux, Nantes &...

I have been favoured with your letter of the 17th Ulto. In May, Mr Alexr Donald made me a remittance in Bills on Robert Morris Esqr. of this City to the amount of 1094 85/90 Dollrs; and a few days since I received another drought on the same Gentleman for 306 65/90 Dollars making together 1401 60/90 Dollrs or Four hundred and twenty pounds ten Shillings Virginia Currency—which I have placed to...
Your letter of the 24th, with the report, is before me; & such observations as occur, shall be handed to you. In plowing the drilled Corn, it is to be remembered, that throwing the furrow always to the plant, will leave the land in high ridges; and make it more liable to wash, & run into Gullies; to avoid wch, was one of my principal motives for introducing the Hoe & common Iron toothed...

I had the honour of putting into your hands, when at Pa[ris a list] of some plated ware, of which I wished to know the cost before I should d[ecide] on the purchase. You were so good as to charge yourself with giving me that information on your arrival in London. Supposing that either you may have mislaid my note, or that your answer may have miscarried I take the liberty of troubling you...
Just returned from a journey of 3. or 4. months I have been immersed in such a mass of writing that it has been impossible for me sooner to acknolege your favors of June 9. 13. and 21. With respect to the quality of lands in general in the counties of Monongalia and Harrison, it is impossible for me to give any opinion, because I never was in that part of the country at all, nor nearer it than...
You conclude, Madam, from my long silence that I am gone to the other world. Nothing else would have prevented my writing to you so long. I have not thought of you the less. But I took a peep only into Elysium. I entered it at one door, and came out at another, having seen, as I past, only Turin, Milan, and Genoa. I calculated the hours it would have taken to carry me on to Rome. But they were...
Having no acquaintance from South Carolina in London since the departure of Mr. Blake, which I suppose to have taken place, I take the liberty of sending to your care a small parcel of Piedmont rice, addressed to Mr. Drayton chairman of the committee of the South Carolina society for promoting and improving agriculture.

Finding on my return to this place that the bookseller to whom I had committed the plate of my map, instead of keeping it only a fortnight, had not yet delivered it to be forwarded to you, I demanded an instantaneous delivery of it.
