The sailing of the Packet on which we are to go to New Port, being unexpectedly deferred till this afternoon, gives me an opportunity of inclosing a copy of No 3, & of adding a few words. I know that your ideas now are the same which they were in 1776 respecting a vigorous executive: I then & for several years afterwards tho’t the necessity for one so powerful would not exist within half a...
Being here on a few days visit with Mrs. Gerry to her aged parents, & having left six small children, the eldest of whom has the care of the rest and of the domesticks, I am deprived of the honor of paying my personal respects to you at this time.

I was mortified to find, that before Mr. Osgood was informed of my intention to be here, he received your letter of the 13th of may and sent it...

In a family of five young Ladies who had by a very short Illness lost a Parent, they too of much sensibility and delicate Constitutions, I found other attentions than writing Letters.
