12d. (Adams Papers)
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 unmolested over the alternate hillock, and reading or endeavouring to read the inscriptions, which love and friendship have written on the simple monuments, which the indefatigable hand of Time, had...

Revising the letters and notes in my possession on the subject of our commerce, I observe you say in your letter of Dec. 12. that we pay Alien duties in the ports of France, supposed the double of what we ought to pay. If by this you mean that we are not on as favourable a footing as Spain, it would be vain to remonstrate on that subject. The family compact expressly excluded all other nations...
The present is merely to inform you of the safe arrival of Polly in London, in good health. I have this moment dispatched a servant for her. Mr. Ammonit did not come, but she was in the best hands possible, those of Captain Ramsay. Mrs. Adams writes me she was so much attached to him that her separation from him was a terrible operation. She has now to go through the same with Mrs. Adams. I...
Being just returned from a tour through the Southern parts of France and Northern of Italy, I could not till this moment acknolege the receipt of your obliging letter with the papers accompanying it. It happened unluckily also that those addressed to the Marquis de la Fayette were under my cover. I put them into his hands the moment of my return. From the opportunities you have had of coming...
I received lately your favor of April 23, on my return from a journey of 3. or 4. months, and am always happy in an occasion of recalling myself to your memory. The most interesting intelligence from America is that respecting the late insurrection in Massachusets. The cause of this has not been developed to me to my perfect satisfaction. The most probable is that those individuals were of the...
On my return from a tour through the Southern parts of France and Northern of Italy, I found here the present of books you had been so kind as to send me. I should value them highly for their intrinsic merit, but much more as coming from you. You will have seen that at length one of our republics has experienced those commotions which the newspapers have been always ascribing to all of them. I...
Mr. Jefferson’s compliments to Mr. Joddrell and thanks him for the copy of the Persian Heroine which he was so good as to send him, and which he finds here on his return from a journey of 3. or 4. months. Not having yet had a moment to look into a book of any kind he has still to come the pleasure of reading this, which he is persuaded from it’s reputation, and that of it’s author, will be...
