Adams Papers

From George Cabot to Abigail Smith Adams, 12 April 1799

Brookline 12th April 99.—

Dear madam

I send you 5 bushels of early & 7 of late potatoes, which tho it fullfils my promise does not satisfy my intention.—foreseeing that you would wish for more than I cou’d spare, I have enquired among my neighbours, but like myself they are all scantily supplied

I have however directed your messenger to the best source of information on the road where I still hope he will find what are wanting—Mrs. Cabot desires me to express to you in her behalf the sentiments of unfeigned esteem & respect which she well knows are always felt by your much obliged / & most humble servant,

Georg Cabot
