I am almost asham’d to acknowledge how long it has been since I wrote you last, and can only hope you will consider my numerous letters to my brother, most of which I intended as much for you as for him, to be a sufficient apology—I have not received a line from you or from my father since last June, though I think it impossible but that you should have written more than once—My last letter to...
Permit Me, dear Madam, to offer My thanks for your care of letters, from Our dear Children—and to congratulate you on your return to peace feild . I feel assured that You and Yours, will injoy a tranquility, that is Not in the power of the World to give , Or take away —I reflect with triumph that Mr Adams can adopt those pleaseing lines of Our favourite Poet— “True Conscious honour, is to feel...
A mind agitated by the Vicissitudes attendant upon the present juncture of publick affairs, & oppressed by a large portion of domestic concerns, cannot often be disposed, nor find leisure to delineate its feelings upon paper—To the almost impossibility of portraying the various sentiments, passions, & exercises of the heart which have been roused in the past winter, I attribute yours, & my...
Your kind letter dated this day week, has just come to hand. I rejoice to hear of your arrival once more at the farm house & that you have so far recovered from the unlucky accident, which befel you, as to be able to walk about. The return of my father was announced in the newspapers & with the addition of a line, signifying that “his worth would make him welcome there.” It is a source of...
I received a few days ago your kind letter of 29 January. After having been so many months without a line from you, it gave me sincere pleasure to see your hand-writing again, though I could not but sympathise with the afflictions under the immediate burden of which it was written—I have cordially and deeply lamented my poor brother, and will obey your injunction respecting his child. I learn...
We live in such changfull times that it is delightfull to meet an Old friend with the same face and feelings . Your excellent sister added much to my injoyment yesterday by passing half an hour with me I gave her a long message to you. but as it may be some days before she sees you I think best to write a line. I have been wishing to pass a night or two with you a long time and had not Mrs...
I have received the things you sent me by Townsend and my Aunt Cranch with your letter of this morning and the shirts, for which please to receive my thanks. I find this town so very noisy and the present situation in which I am so very different, on many accounts from any in which I have ever before been, that it will take some time before I shall become naturalized. This circumstance and not...
Ten days ago, I shipped your Carriage on board a Schooner called the Hannah of Nantucket bound for Boston, and as there was no room below, I had to consent to its being secured upon Deck. Since the vessel sailed, we have had, until this day, a constant Succession of North Easterly Storms, which has given me uneasiness on account of your property on board, and in order to cover the loss, in...
Your favor of the 22d: inst. ulto, has been a few days in hand. I thank you kindly for “the word intended for my private ear,” and shall avail myself freely of the offer, when occasion may require. Since I wrote you last, I concluded that it was hardly worth while to Insure the Carriage, and therefore if fortune has proved adverse, your loss will be total as to the body of the Coach only,...
It was with peculiar pleasure my dear Mrs Adams that I received your kind favour of 5th of April, having heard of the accident you met with, I was fearful it might have been attended with bad concequences. Your neighbours whom you mention as being sick, I hope are in a state of convalescence & that Quincy air, is more salubrious than it has been for some time past. That the weather has been...
