Dear Harriet

I know you will be glad to see my handwriting, and more so, when I tell you that I have rode out to day as far as the meeting house, and feel the better for it; Sunday night slept very little, and that much disturbed. last night was much easier and slept natural sleep—am very weak— this morg’ Mail brought a Letter from mrs Buckana for you, and Letters from N york from abroad, one from mr A to his Father in Sep’br, none <for> to me, from him, one from George dated 31 october, but nothing new, as the vessel must have had a long passage—

Tomorrow I hope to finish my began Letter to Caroline—kind remembrance to mrs Bailey and your Mother / from / yours as ever

A Adams
