I hope the head-ache with which you were afflicted at the time when you wrote me your letter—of the 4th: which I have received, did not outlast that day, and that it left you ever since to enjoy good health and Spirits—Mine are at present as good as my situation will permit, and excepting the temporary inconveniences arising from too free a use of fruit, on the ripening of the peaches, have...
I am in hopes there is a letter from you, lingering somewhere, at the Post-Office; not having received any, since I wrote you last; nor of course heard from you of a later date than the 4th: of this month. I have not been from Quincy since my last; nor shall probably more than once or twice, before my departure to rejoin you—My present intention is to leave this place about the twenty-first of...
After an interval of considerable anxiety, arising from the lapse of time, since I had heard from my dearest friend, I was at length at once confirmed in my apprehensions, and in some sort relieved from their alarm by your letter of the 14th: which however I did not receive untill the Evening before last—The Washington Post Mark on the cover was dated the 15th: but, I had sent into Boston to...
Once more is the correspondence on the part of my best friend brought up from all arrears; as I received since my last your two letters, of the 16th: and 23d: ulto: both together—I hope we shall on neither side be in arrears again, as I still hold the purpose of leaving this place, at latest a fortnight from to-morrow—It will give me great pleasure to meet you at Baltimore; but I cannot...
This is the last Time I shall write you from this place for the present—I have determined to accelerate my departure, and not wait untill the 22d. as I had heretofore proposed—On Wednesday next it is my intention to take passage in the Stage for Providence, but as the Stages now commence on the Winter establishment I do not expect to reach New-York earlier than the 22d: There I purpose to stop...
I congratulate you my dear Louissa, that our loss is to be your gain. mr Adams leaves us on tuesday for washington, where I hope he will arrive in safety, and have a joyfull meeting with his family.

I received yesterday your Letter of Novbr 27th. and was rejoiced to learn that you and the Children were well. I was just contemplating writing a Letter to my son to chide him for not writing to inform me, how George was grown, and improved, what he said when he saw his pappa again, and how mister John came on, whether he is as grave as his Brother George was how Master Georges socks fitted...
Inclosed you have a Letter, to mr Rutledge which you may if you like send to your Brother if you think it will be of any service to him. We yesterday received a few lines from mr Adams of the 14th from which I learnt you were all in tolerable Health, I want to know if his cough has left him, and whether he has any thing of the Rheumatism in his Limbs. I would have him pay particular attention...
I received two days since your Letter of Febry th 11. it containd information the most agreable that mr Adams was in better Health and Spirits is cheering news to me. I feared through want of attention to himself that his cough would fix upon his Lungs, and produce very allarming concequences—the time is fast approaching when Congress must rise, whether they have done good, or whether they...
The reason that you did not receive a Letter from me when you arrived at Philadelphia, was oweing to my being so sick that I could not write.
