I thought that voyage to England, would end in a matrimonial engagement in Boston I wish...
I cannot neglect the Opportunity which Mr King’s return to America gives me of inquiring after Mr Adams & you; & still more particularly after my little Godson—; who is I hope in every respect as prosperous as he promised to be when he left Berlin. I am likewise troubling Mr King with an inkstand of our English China; which I wish you to keep upon your writing table as a souvenir of a distant...
I received this morning your letter of the 4th: instt: which gave me pleasure as containing the information of the children’s health; and sorrow by that of your own indisposition—The remainder of the letter was equally painful and unexpected to me—Our separation was very much against my inclination, but it was your own choice, and it has been my unvaried principle, and I hope will always be...

Mr: and...
