I thank you for your Excellent Address. The patriotic Sentiments and Spirited resolutions contained in it have Seldom if ever been exceeded.

Amidst the numerous addresses from our Fathers & Brethren throughout United America, on the present Critical Situation of our Country, replete with just indignation at the unparallel’d Conduct towards us, of an imperious, unprincipled European Powerand with Assurances of the most perfect Acquiesence in, and firmest Support of every measure which has been, or may be pursued by our Executive for...
but I was thinking so much of Quincy, that I mechanically dated from thence; when I sent Letters for Louisa, mrs Brisler &c by yesterdays mail; I could not get time to add a line of my own; being engaged in writing to Berlin by the British packet. Since my last to you, I have recived a Letter from Mrs Johnson inclosing Letters to her, both from mr & mrs A— at which I rejoiced. She has thought...
Mr. Edmund Soper, on whose Accounts I wrote to you sometime since, is now going to Philadelphia to solicit an office in the Land or Sea Service, what office I know not; but having no one there to introduce him, He has urged me to write by him, that he might have an Opportunity with the greater Propriety to make his Application—Compassion to him has induced him me to comply with his Request. He...
