123d. (Adams Papers)
Attended upon Mr. Carey the whole day. His manner is not very agreeable; but his stile is much better than common. Townsend called here in the evening. Amory set off this morning for Boston. They say it is impossible for him to stay three days at a time in one place. He has been absent 6 or 8 months, and promised Mr. Parsons some time ago that he would come, and be very steady all through the...
A Letter from my dear Aunt Adams recievd last July remains unanswered; I am almost ashamed to reccollect it; but for a long time indisposition tottally prevented my using my pen at all: it was under absolute prohibition— within these few weeks my health seems mending—& possibly I may injoy a comfortable degree of it this winter: the pleasing hope of your return in the Spring, which I now...
I wrote to you about three weeks since thinking clallahan would sail immediatly but he is not yet gone & I find Folger will go before him—but my Letters will be old unless I add a short one now— I was not a little dissapointed by not receiving a Line by the Last vessel which arriv’d Doctor Tufts receiv’d one from you & he got it before those you sent by the way of new york He will tell you...
The Accounts from Holland and France are very discouraging: So much so that it would be imprudent to enter into a detail of Evils that are inevitable. The Republick of Holland is in the Utmost danger of being extinct: and if the old Forms are hereafter preserved, the Prince will be so much Master, in Reality that the Friends of Liberty must be very unhappy, and live in continual disgrace and...

On rect of your favour from the head of Elk I waited on Capt. Morris who informed me he had not recd your note respecting the Hounds but he has now wrote you fully on that subject as far as your Queries went in my Letter—if there is any thing omitted he begs you to inform him —Mr Haines from whom I had the seed Barley for you informs me that there has been most extraordinary great Crops of...
I embrace the earliest Opportunity, after notice of your return to Mount Vernon, to address you on a Subject that has given me no small share of disquiet. A few days ago I received a Letter from Majr Washington; informing me that “You had been made acquainted with my draught on You in favour of Mr Porter; That you were unable to account for my applying to any Person for what was due from you;...
The Gentlemen who have arrived from the Convention inform us that you are on the way to join us—least, however, you may, under a supposition that the State of the delegation is such as to admit of your absence, indulge yourself in leisurely movements, after the fatiguing time you have had, I take this precaution to apprise you that the same schism which unfortunately happened in our State in...
L’état où je suis avec mon Epouse et fille est affreux. Le désordre est dans la province et dans ce lieu, le bras civil obéit à la Haie au militaire, et à la populace écumante de rage. Tout cela n’est peut-être pas encore à son comble. Nous avons sauvé notre vie foible, en nous réfugiant à l’hôtel de France, dénués de tout le nécessaire à l’entretien de nos personnes, sans pouvoir parvenir à...

The Carters left this Town the 4th. inst. with the Boxes, and was bound to deliver them unto your Excellency the 15th....
