My Dear Mother
I grieve to be under the necessity of informing you that I am again to be disappointed of passing next Monday with you at Quincy as the expence of a Carriage is double on account of the celebration of Independance. I shall certainly keep this Anniversary in the full conviction that we are too much the creatures of circumstances to enjoy much of th<
is>e boasted blessing or I should not at this moment have to repeat my regret In the hope however that it is only defer’d a short time I am dear Madam your affectionate daughter

P.S. Mrs Welsh will not have it in her power to go out & President will I hope pass the Night with us
