ALS : American Philosophical Society I have had no Line from you since those you favour’d me with by Cousin Jonathan Williams. I hope you continue in health, as I do, Thanks to God. But I wish to know how you fare in the present Distress of our dear Country. I am apprehensive that the Letters between us, tho’ very innocent ones, are intercepted.

ALS : American Philosophical Society I received your kind Letters of May the 1st and 18th. I rejoice to hear that you and yours continue in Health; as I do, Thanks to God.

And as ridiculous as false, since it implies that I have not...

I thank you for your good Wishes that I may be a means of restoring Harmony between the two Countries. It would make me very happy to see it, whoever was the Instrument.

ALS : American Philosophical Society I have not heard from you since your Goods arriv’d. I hope they got safe to hand, and that they please.

ALS (letterbook draft): Library of Congress I believe it is long since I have written any Letters to you. I hope you will excuse it. I am oppress’d with too much Writing, and am apt to postpone when I presume upon some Indulgence. I received duly yours of Jan. 19. Apr. 20. May 5 and May 15. Our Relations Jenkins and Paddock came to see me. They seem to be clever sensible Men. Is there not a...
ALS (letterbook draft): Library of Congress I received your kind Letter of Dec. 30. and rejoice to find you were well.
