The papers enclosed, are 1. A press copy, of my letter to you dated 28: of last month, which I have hitherto neglected sending you—2. Do: of the Gazette N: 2. which I have sent to your father—This you will peruse and then forward to him—It will not do for publication—The plan I think might be improved so as to make it very useful, for communicating a concise view of European events—But as yet...
I have read your Brothers Letters, with much pleasure; that part of them; in which he so dutifully, affectionatly, and generously tenders all his property for the use of his parents, affected both your Father and me most tenderly; thank God, we have not any occasion for it; our desires are moderate, our oeconomy strickt, our income, tho moderate, will furnish us with all the necessaries, and...
I enclose my third letter upon the book concerning the State of France. I know not whether I shall have time to finish this examination, & my project of furnishing you with frequent articles upon foreign politics & literature, will of course cease by my recall, which I have now received. As I suppose it was known to you, some days after it took place, you will probably not write to me again,...
.My child was yesterday baptized by the name of George Washington; and may the grace of Almighty God guard his life and enable him, when he is come to manhood, to prove himself worthy of it! I was not induced merely by the public character of that great and good man to show his memory this token of respect. President Washington was, next to my own father, the man upon earth to whom I was...
I returned too late in the evening: from Potsdam, to send the enclosed letter for you by the last post but I hope it will not be the longer delayed in its departure for waiting untill this day. The other is the 5th: upon a work the examination of which I have not yet finished, and which I must for the present suspend. My wife is yet very slowly recovering but not yet able to sit up. I shall...
I have received two Letters from you since I wrote to you, one 26 April, the last 2d May—inclosing one from your Brother, which I now return, without knowing what advice to give you; upon the Subject of it; in what productive property you can place his interest, excepting those he has prohibited you from, I know not. The funds of this State stand well, and are to be had with great difficulty....
I inclose you for Mr. Oldschool a letter commencing the review of a new publication of Mr. Gentz—You will perhaps enquire, why I begin upon this before I have finished the examination of the Etat de la France . The reason is that this last book was lent to me, that the owner called upon me to return it, and that I have been unable to procure me a copy of it either in this town or at the...
I wrote you last week that I expected to sail on board the Catherine, Captain Ingersoll, from Hamburg for New-York—But he goes so much sooner than I expected, that I am unable to take the advantage of this opportunity, and shall be obliged to wait for another—Perhaps even, I may embark for Philadelphia, though from various reasons I am averse to going there; balanced only by the single motive...
William Shaw brought me Your Letter the day before yesterday. I had learnt before, by the public papers, the death of mrs Bingham and many have been my reflection s upon it. Health presuming, Beauty Blooming, ah how dreadfull tis to dye,” Says fair Rossomond; that Mrs Bingham was one of the most Elegant, and highly accomplishd women, our Country has furnished, no one who knew her, will deny....
If any one had foretold that three or four months would have passed away at Stonnyfield, and that I should have written but one short line to my dear Thomas, I should have resented the prediction, as an affront to my understanding, if not to my heart yet so it is. I have not even acknowledged yours of 21st of May. My heart was too full to write upon the subject of that of your letter which...
