1July 30th. Saturday. (Adams Papers)
All hands carting Earth and making Compost, i.e. 4 hands Billings, Bass and the two Lathrops. Billings is in his Element. Building Wall and making manure are his great delights, he says. He says he will cover all my Clover with green Seaweed. Drop part of a Load on the lower Part and carry the rest up the hill to the Barley Stubble. He will make a heap of Compost too upon the Top of the Hill...
Upon contemplating the subject of settleing the eastern boundary of the untied States, and attending to of expression in the treaty of 1795, that the commissioners shall decide what river was intended by the commissioners at Paris in 1783, as the Saint Croix; I am of opinion that it is necessary to establish the facts, that Mitchells map was, as an authority before the commissioners, and that...
Je ne sais si vous aurez reçu de moi un pacquet que je remis il y a quelques mois à un Français qui partait pour Philadelphie & où je vous accusais la réception de votre lettre. J’ai apprécié Monsieur comme je le devais, la confiance avec la quelle vous vous y entreteniez avec moi, & autant cette confiance m’a flatté, autant j’ai eu de regrets en voyant que j’avais pu me servir en parlant de...
I must leave the City for Philada on Monday, to return in about a week—if before my departure you can with convenience give an answer on the proposition made to you, it will oblige me. If the general principle marked by me should meet your approbation, I shall have no objection to making very important alterations to square with your wishes relative to the pursuit of other objects. believe me...
I have carefully reflected upon the subject of your letter of the 27th. instant. Though the data which it presents authorise an expectation of large pecuniary advantage and though I discover nothing in the affair which an Individual differently circumstanced might not with propriety enter into—yet in my peculiar situation, viewed in all its public as well as personal relations, I think myself...
I have the pleasure to send you herewith a certain draft which I have endeavoured to make as perfect as my time and engagements would permit. It has been my object to render this act importantly and lastingly useful, and avoiding all just cause of present exception, to embrace such reflections and sentiments as will wear well, progress in approbation with time, & redound to future reputation....
The period for a new election of a Citizen to administer the Executive Gov of the U States being not very distant and the time actually arrived when the your thoughts of my fellow Citizens must be employed in designating the Citizen who is to administer the Executive Government of the United States the person who is to be cloathed with that important trust for another term, it may conduce to...
I had written you a short line previous to the Receipt of your letter of the 26th to which indeed I can add nothing material. It will, as things stand, be imprudent to push the point of a further loan till the President arrives —for though a majority of the Directors are well disposed to the thing, they are afraid of McCormick’s clamours and want the sanction of the President to controul &...

It is with reluctance I find myself Obliged to resign the appointment I hold in the judicial department as judge of the district of Georgia—The duty I owe to my children compels me to quit an Office, the compensation for which will not afford me the means of giving them an education suitable to their condition. I have therefore determined to resign on the first day of September next, which...
