When I borrow a sentiment from Machiavel’s “plan of a perfect Commonwealth” to accompany my congratulations and to participate in the joyful issue of the greatest spectacle which the Christian World has ever beheld, I cannot with hold my admiration of the aptness of the quotation for the occasion to which I would make it subservient, should it reach you on the day of your induction to the...
Your favour of the 7th Instant was duly received at the Same time that the packages addressed to the President came to his hands. Accept our thanks for this mark of attention, which was quite Seasonable and acceptable. Since I wrote you I have had an interview with Mr. Stoddard who made me a Small payment of Cash, much short of the sum I had demanded of him. When we meet in October, as you...
I have received a few more returns from the war Department, of Certificates for pension. Among others, one for old Mr Amos Thayer and one for Mr Solomon Thayer; I saw Dr Wild—one of your Selectmen on Tuesday and informed him as to Mr: Amos Thayer.

I am informed that my Nephew G W. Adams is to take his examination on Friday next, and as Bondsmen are required by the College Government, I should be glad if you will join with me in the Obligation, as I know of no one whom I can ask with equal freedom.

I received your favour of the 17th August and thank you for your prompt compliance with my wishes in the article of books. I have not been in Boston since the receipt of it and cannot therefore acknowledge the receipt of the missing Volumes at Messrs: Cummings & Co—The same reason has prevented my depositing there the two or three books with the name of Mr Shaw in them. One of these was a file...
Your last letter 24th: 5th ulto: came to hand on New Year’s day, and was the most acceptable compliment that I received. Indeed it was the only favour brought by the Mail, that diffused joy, as it acquainted us with the safe arrival of Charles, notwithstanding the weather. Mrs Clarke received the tidings of the death of her Sister Maria Clarke, which, though not unexpected, has sadden’d her...
Your favour of the 20th. Instant was received by this day’s Mail. Without paraphrase I will furnish, from memory, as many facts as may be required to answer the questions involved in your letter. The family genealogy by my Father’s side is preserved in a chart which has been collected and a copy of which is now before me, from which is extracted the following title. “A Genealogical Chart of...
The enclosed letter from President Kirkland to me was received yesterday, though dated the 20th. A letter from the City of Washington might have reached me in nearly the same time. My reply to the President is enclosed for your perusal, and approbation if you think it entitled, and for your correction if you think it requires any. Having been present when the address was delivered, before the...
You was kind enough to send me a Copy of the Message, for which I thank you. By an arrangement made with my Nephew, Mr J Adams, I receive the documents and Mr Hobart has forwarded a set to my Father. I do not remember ever to have read abler state papers from each department. As you are well acquainted with the forms of Office, I wish to call your attention to an application I made to the...
After a series of appointments to meet Mr Stoddard which proved abortive, he came to Quincy Yesterday and we effected a settlement so far as to divide equally the amount of the principal due by Notes of hand, and the whole sum being $332.0 I took two Notes of him for $166–0. each; one of which is made payable to you or your Order on demand with Interest from the first of November 1826. He paid...
