I am at a loss my dear Sir to find words to express what I felt at the reception of your very friendly letter! So much kindness has filled my heart with gratitude and believe me when I assure you this Sentiment will last as long as my own existence. I can easily conclude from what you tell me that I can entertain little or no hopes of obtaining from Congress any kind of assistance for my Son:...

The best Receipt for the Sausage—is to send you one which I wish you to take home and try. In the Autumn at the time you kill Hogs— take all the Skin off of the leaf Lard—and in every one wrap up as much sausage Meat—as will Make about the size and Shape of a neats Tongue (which can be done by a little Practice) —it requires no sewing—just slap it over while wet and it will stick. Mrs: Edwards...

I beleive I have obtained such information respecting the Freezing Cave as will enable you to find it. It is thirty miles from Winchester, two miles from the Road leading from that town to Romney, on the North River of Cape Capon. Mr. White, who gave Mr. Strickland an account of this curiosity, says he has seen it and examined it with much attention. Impressed, however, with an Idea, that the...
Agreeably to my promise I cover you as many Grains of the Cumberland Corn as can be conveniently conveyed in a Letter and I hope they will reach you safe. I have also sealed up very carefully about a Pint of the same Corn and shall request our Friend John Mason to forward it to some Gentleman in Fredericksburg of whom I will give you notice in a P.S. to this Letter that you may direct any of...

Our Friends Mr. and Mrs. Church with their Family, are on the point of embarking for America where they hope to pass the remainder of their time in a tranquillity of which Europe and especially this Country appears to have little to hope for many years to come. Among the many friends whom they will find happy and impatient to receive them on their Return, there are few whom Mrs. and Miss...
Permit me, with great sincerity, to congratulate you on your appointment to the office of Vice-President of the United States. It was in my mind a very desirable object, and a wish which I ardently expressed at the meeting of the electors; but, as we were unanimously of opinion that Mr. Adams’ pretensions to the chair were best, it was impossible to give you any votes without annulling an...
If I resume my pen once more to address you from this side of the Atlantic it is more that I may not let Colo. Monroe go without carrying some sign of life from me, than from any hope I retain of being able to add by it either to your instruction or amusement. You will recieve from him viva voce, all and every kind of information that I could give you of a public nature—and as to myself I hope...
