My Son having Sent me a coppy of your valuable Book, the President has read it with great Satisfaction and pleasure; I have not as yet been able to go through the whole of it, myself having resignd it into the hands of miss Hannah Adams the Authoriss of a Work entitled “a veiw of Religious opinions”—She is about republishing the third Edition of that work with considerable additions, and Some...
I need not put up the petition of Popes “teach me to feel an others woe” for I have mostSsincerely enterd into your affliction during your long residence at Washington, and thank heaven for your cause of rejoicing—I dared not write to you and feared the arrival of every mail might bring me the melancholy tidings we all so much dreaded, but through the interposition of a bountifull providence,...
it would be if made. we must be convinced, as well as the people of in general, that the convention taken all together is highly advantageous to the Country; Let then a thinking and impartial Man Compare the Situation of the united States on the 4 of March 1797 when the President assumed the office of their first executive magistrate with their Situation on the Same day 1801, when those...
a Contrast, which they may lament, but cannot now remedy. to a total and final relinquishment of publick Life, we retire to the rural Scenes of Quincy; not to become querilious with the world, not to molest or disturb the administration of the new Government, if it adopts not measures ruinous to the Country, but hopeing for better prospects than present themselves now to our view—that we may...
I write you once more from this city. the Trenton River is impassable and has prevented my sitting out. we hope however that the Rain may clear it. I Sent Townsend of to day; I have heard Some of the democratic rejoicing such as Ringing Bells & fireing cannon; what an inconsistancy said a Lady to me to day, the Bells of Christ Church ringing peals of rejoicing for an Infidel president! The...
I reachd this city on tuesday Evening. at Baltimore Leiut Parker came in to see me, and offerd his service to me; I had engaged a carriage of Evans to take me here with good horses and a carefull driver, for which I was to give him 80 dollars or in proportion if I could not get across the Susquahannah I offerd mr Parker a seat with me. he was very usefull to me and exerted himself very much or...
I wrote to you last Evening requesting You to meet me at the Susquahanah; but I did not reflect that it was two days Journey. this Evening Leiut partner has arrived and has tenderd me his Services; mr Evans furnishes me with a carriage to philadelphia provided we can cross the River if I cannot get over, I must depend upon the chapter of chances—if I can get over I expect to be in on tuesday....
Altho I was much fatigued last Evening, I wrote a few lines to the President to let him know we were safely housed. The Roads were so bad that the Mail tho two hours before us in the morning did not get in untill half an hour after us, and there was not any Mail from Philadelphia. We took colds all of us; I have a very Soar throat and Louisa a Stiff neck. Susan this morning complaind her...
I arrived here about half after Six, without any accident, but beat and bang’d enough I do not wish for the present, a severer punishment to the Jacobins & half feds who have Sent me home at this Season, than to travel the Roads in the San Culot Stile just now; the Roads were hard frozen points up, all the way. We were 4 hours making our first Stage, and then commenced a voilent Snow Storm....
I suppose the reason why I have not had a Letter from you for a long time, arrises from your expectation that I am upon my Journey; the Roads have been represented to me as so intolerable bad, and I know them to be so, that I have been prevaild upon to remain longer than I designd. I now think I shall stay untill after the 13th of Feby, the great important day which may in its concequences...
