I have already acknowledged your favors of March 18. April 4. since when, at different intervals I have received your kind letters of May 1. & 7.— My brother has one from you of June 12. in which the receipt of my letter of March 4th. to my father is mentioned, and in a manner calculated to call forth all my gratitude, if not to excite some little emotion of self-applause. I have given way to...
Your kind favor of July 19th. was transmitted from Hamburg by our cousin Welsh & came to hand last evening. He had a pleasant passage of 38 days and will come on here as soon as he is a little recruited. We had already received your letter of the 14th. informing of his intended embarkment in a short time, and I have made my arrangements in consequence to be off as soon as the Elizabeth letter...
I reached my fathers house at 4 o’Clock yesterday afternoon, and had the happiness of finding my him in health. He gave me the cordial welcome of a father who approves of the conduct and behavior of the Son who had been absent. I can write nothing for your information from hence, as I am too much in haste to make the necessary visits to the Cabinet & Congress Gentlemen. I will write you when...
I have had the pleasure of seeing and perusing two or three letters from you to my Father and Mr. Shaw since my arrival here, and have learnt with joy that your health is better than it has been for some time past. Do not be impatient for my coming on, for I shall certainly make no unnecessary delay, and unless I should take a run to George town for a moment, I shall set off for Boston on...
I left Philadelphia the 9th: instt: and after passing a few days very pleasantly at Baltimore in the society of Mr: Johnsons family & that of Mrs: John Smith, came to this place where I had the satisfaction to meet Mr: Cranch in tolerable health & spirits. I have been received & treated with uncommon hospitality and politeness in both these places, from the first characters, and as no...
Your kind favor of the 2d: instt: found me as you conjectured at Philadelphia, fixed in my lodgings & in possession of my Office, which however is too far removed from the Court house & the seat of business. I was unwilling to give up the advantage of living in the family where I am, because in case of this fever appearing in the City, the same lady has a place of her own at Germantown to...
I have your favor of the 15th: instt: and thank you for your kind solicitude respecting my health, which is just passable and no more–The extremes of heat & cold have a sensible effect upon my Constitution, and though I am tolerably free from rheumatics and faintness, yet I have the old complexion, with a tinge of yellow less perhaps than when I left you. My feverish habit still hangs about...
I have your favor of the 30th: ulto. before me, and thank you for your tender solicitude on account of my health, for which however I think you need not be particularly solicitous, since I am, excepting a few sensations peculiar to the climate of this City at this season, as well as usual, in addition to which I am on the point of leaving town for some weeks to reside at Germantown in the same...
I thank you for your favor of the 15th: instt: which reached me yesterday at this place, where I have been since the 15th: and where notwithstanding your kind invitation & advice, I expect to continue until it shall be clearly ascertained whether the pestilential fever is to prevail or not in the City this season. I am out of the way of danger, if any should exist, and before the expiration of...
I am in possession of your favor of the 21st: instt: with the letter of my brother enclosed; they were both very acceptable and I return the enclosure with thanks for the perusal—I hope shortly to receive the letter, which he mentions having written me on the subject of his affairs; though I think they are in as good & safe a train as any disposition I could make of them—I have written an...
