Adams Papers

Richard Cranch to Abigail Adams, 23 Apr. 1797

Sunday morning Apl. 23d. 1797.

My dear Sister

I am sorry for your Affliction in the Loss of your good Mother, but at the same time must look upon her Departure as attended with the most alleviating circumstance of having so easy a dismission from a State of weakness and infirmity to the Rewards of Virtue in a better State. As to the supply of the Pulpit to day, I can only inform you that Mr. Whitney promised me <my> by his Letter that he should preach for us this Sabbath, but is not yet come. I have enclosed Mr. Black’s Order which he desires you to endorse and return to the Collector, who will thereupon discharge that Sum on his Bill against you.

I am, with great obligation, yours most affectionately

Richard Cranch
