For a few days past, every moment of my time has been so compleatly occupied in official duties, that I have had hardly a moments time to write or even to think for myself—We have not heard from or , since your last letter to the President from Philadelphia. The President has nominated all the officers for this district Mr F. Johnson of Frederick—Mr Marshall of Alexandria, brother to ex Sec of...
I have had the pleasure to receive your very kind letter of the 14th of Feb. at Baltimore, for which I pray you to receive the grateful offerings of an honest heart. I should not have neglected answering it, till this late date, had I not been uncommonly occupied in business, and had nothing to tell you, but what I wrote to Mr. Adams, whose letters I presume you have seen. Soon after you left...
I have a thousand times wish’d to express to you my gratitude for the attentions I received from you during your residence here; and most particularly, for your kindness to my dear mother and family during her late severe illness; but a consciousness of the insufficiency of language to give a faithful representation of my feelings, has hitherto imposed upon me a silence which I fear may be...
Saturday night 9 O Clock and not before I recd yours of 13th. and the Letter to Thomas with it, brought here no doubt by mistake. I regret very much that you have not a Gentleman with you. The Skittish young Colt with you, is always timorous, but no harm will befall you or her I trust. The Weather and roads here, on Saturday Sunday and to day are the finest We have seen this year. The Election...
I have your favor of the 25th: ulto: with the paper enclosed; the contents of which amused me much—If you leave the City on Tuesday, my answer will not reach you; but I suppose it will be sent after you. There is Mrs. White’s lodging house in 8th: Street, which is more private than the Hotel, and where I presume you can be accommodated at short notice. It will be preferable to Francis’s, at...
J. May’s most respectfull compliments to Mrs: Adams, and renders the enclosed, agreably to her request. Although the high honour, and happiness confered on him, by the confidence of Mrs: Adams, is infinitely above any pecuniary compensation; yet, in obedience to her request, he is obliged to submit an account; which, with deference, he hopes will be satisfactory to her. He begs to assure Mrs:...
I have received your favor of the 15th: instt: with a curious statement respecting treaties, which I shall preserve. I knew very well you would not like Manlius, as indeed there are not many who do—but the young man, who wrote under that signature has few readers & no opposers, so that his vanity receives very little adulation from public notice. He is a Sensible, and worthy youth, for whom I...
I have received your letters of the 2d: & 3d: instant and thank you for them—I shall agree with Fielding for the Coachee and attend to the conveniences you mention. I can suggest no method for your coming to this place, unless by taking a carriage from Washington, which might be sent back by Stage horses. Barney, of Georgetown, would most probably contract with you for one—. I am so fortunate...
It was with great Pleasure that I recognized the well known Hand writing, which it is so many years since I have seen. It was impossible not to avail myself of the Contents of the Note I found in the President’s Letter, in some prefatory Remarks which you will read in the Gazette, I have taken the liberty to send you. Chagrined as I am with a late Event which has furnished so noble a Triumph...
I take up my pen to mingle with you and Mrs. Adams the feelings of our Great Affliction for the Death of General Washington. A better Man and a Greater General never lived. I have lost a real And Sincere friend who would protect Me. I now look up to you Sir to protect me in my rights and from knowing you here I shall feel the Influence of your Protection. Since I had the Honour of Seeing you...
