I duly re cieved, on my late return to this place your acceptable favor of Apr. 22.    in looking back on past life the greatest pleasure I feel, is in recollections of the friends who have been my fellow-laborers, & my greatest happiness in the harmony and affection in which I lived & parted with them. of the manner in which your command in the army was made to cease, no one felt stronger...
I never saw till lately the IX th vol. of Wilson ’s Ornithology. to this a life of the Author is prefixed, by a mr Ord , in which he has indulged himself in great personal asperity against myself. these things in common I disregard, but he has attached his libel to a book which is to go into all countries & thro’ all time. he almost makes his heroe die of chagrin at my refusing to associate...
I recieved yesterday your favor of June 24. and am very sensible of the interest you so kindly take in my health. the eruptive complaint which came upon me in Aug. last was unquestionably produced by the use bath of the warm springs, which I tried on account of rheumatism . the cause of the eruption was mistaken, and it was treated with severe unctions of mercury & sulphur. these reduced me to...
Your favor of Jan. 20. is just now recieved on the subject of mr Stewart and my portrait. he must have spoken without reflexion when he supposed it in my possession and hanging in my hall. the peculiarities of his temper and ideas render him a difficult subject to handle. in the inclosed letter I have endeavored to bring his recollection to rights as softly as I can. with respect to the 1 st...

I shall be perfectly content to recieve the original he drew in Philadelphia in 1805, which was of the common size (what the painters call, I believe, a bust) it will suit...
Your favor of the 8 th came to hand yesterday evening. I hope you will never suppose your letters to be among those which are troublesome to me. they are always welcome, and it is among my great comforts to hear from my antient colleagues, & to know that they are well. the affectionate recollection of mrs Dearborne, cherished by our family, will ever render her health and happiness interesting...
Your letter of Aug. 31. dated so soon after your departure gave me hopes that the sufferings at sea of mrs Dearborne and yourself, if any, had been short. I hope you will both find Lisbon a pleasant residence. I have heard so much of it’s climate that I suppose that alone will go far towards making it so; and should the want of the language of the country lessen the enjoyment of it’s society,...
Your favor of May 16. came duly to hand. I had before heard of the accident which had happened to you, on your return from Washington, & could the more feeling ly sympathise with your sufferings, as having some two or three years ago, experienced also the pain of a fractured arm and dislocated wrist, at a more advanced age too when these accidents are slow in recovery. your letter relieved me...
