My dear Son

Those of the family who could not attend yesterday at Cambridge <yesterday> as well as those who did, are very desirious of reading the lecture. if you will be so good as to let William take it, to day, I will return it on Monday. I wish a few of the Reviews if you can spair them. I carried to Town yesterday your Shirt overalls & waistcoat & handkerchiefs which you left here. as mrs Adams was not at home, I mention them, that it may be recollected they are sent. your Aunt Cranch request me to ask you to send her a couple of peices of Russia Sheeting—I mentiond 2 peices for myself <[. . .]> these are to be brown. I would add one peice of white—the amount of which shall be paid to your Brother when ever the account arrives
