Your favors of the 5th: and 7th: currt. came in course, and I am much indebted to you for the disposition you made of the letters, which arrived, after my father’s departure. I have lately recd; several European letters & pamphlets & ought to have received another with the letter you enclosed me from Mr. Pitcairn, in which he desires particular respects to you. He acknowledges the receipt of...
I returned to the City the night before last on the 18th: day after my departure. My Father sat off on Tuesday and I found the house turned inside out. My own things were carefully packed up by Mr: Briesler and yesterday I had them removed to my lodgings in the same family that I was with last year. Mr: Briesler & family will be ready to sett out on Tuesday and will leave the house in good...
This morning I had the pleasure to receive your favor of the 12th: instt: and am happy to learn your safe arrival at the hospitable mansion, where I fervently hope, you and my Father, may enjoy days & years of tranquil life. For my own sake & for the sake of all my family, it would, I believe, be a happy circumstance, if there should be no further occasion for either of my parents leaving...
I had the pleasure to receive your favor of the 12th: this morning, enclosing a letter from my brother for the perusal of which I thank you. It is a very long time, since I had any intelligence concerning him, and I feel anxious lest some of his letters or mine should have miscarried on the route. W. Shaw informs me, in his letter of the 11th: that the State Department has letters dated in...
I enclose a letter from my brother, received a day or two ago—You will be gratified by the perusal of its contents. In Wayne’s paper of last night, herewith enclosed, you will find a letter from Mr: Thomas Pinckney on the subject of the letter published in the Aurora, by Tench Coxe, signed John Adams: Mr: P—— is not intemperate in his remarks, but he promises to investigate. If he intend s...
I have your favor of the 26th: ulto: with an enclosure; with what I paid for the Servant’s trunk & the casks of wine, the account is just balanced. I have not been called on for any more charges & imagine none are due—The wine I suppose to be a present from Our Consul Mr: Willis. I am extremely grieved at the disaster, which has befallen my Cousin Boylston, & which, according to your...
I now enclose you my Brother’s letter of July the 10th: which I promised to transmit by this day’s Mail; but being anxious to see a considerable portion of it in print, & solicited by Mr. Dennie to furnish him a copy for the Gazette of the U.S. of Monday next, I could not complete the copy in time for sending, so that I am apprehensive you will not receive it until after the President’s...
I have received your favors of the 10th: & 12th: instt: and am highly gratified by their contents; excepting the bill of health, which is less cheering than I could wish it might have been. I have been so occupied with attendance upon Courts and writing to my correspondents in Europe, during the last ten days, that I have not found time to write you; & the expectation of William’s departure...
Our Supreme Court being in session, has occupied my time so much as to prevent answering your favors of the 10th: & 13th: inst: I have seen Mrs. Kirkham since I got your letter, and given her the fresh order; she will prepare the articles and I shall send them as soon as I can. I have applied to two Coachmakers to ascertain what you desired; neither of them have any ready made coaches on hand,...
Your kind letter of the 25th: instt: came by this day’s Mail. I have found a Coachee ready made, at Fielding’s for Sale, which, with the alterations that can with ease & despatch be made, will, I think, answer your purpose exactly. The body of the Coachee is Somewhat Shorter & more in the form of a Coach, than that you have, but it is well put together & the wheels & carriage appear to be very...
I have received your letters of the 2d: & 3d: instant and thank you for them—I shall agree with Fielding for the Coachee and attend to the conveniences you mention. I can suggest no method for your coming to this place, unless by taking a carriage from Washington, which might be sent back by Stage horses. Barney, of Georgetown, would most probably contract with you for one—. I am so fortunate...
I have received your favor of the 15th: instt: with a curious statement respecting treaties, which I shall preserve. I knew very well you would not like Manlius, as indeed there are not many who do—but the young man, who wrote under that signature has few readers & no opposers, so that his vanity receives very little adulation from public notice. He is a Sensible, and worthy youth, for whom I...
I have your favor of the 25th: ulto: with the paper enclosed; the contents of which amused me much—If you leave the City on Tuesday, my answer will not reach you; but I suppose it will be sent after you. There is Mrs. White’s lodging house in 8th: Street, which is more private than the Hotel, and where I presume you can be accommodated at short notice. It will be preferable to Francis’s, at...
