Adams Papers

From Susanna Boylston Adams Clark Treadway to William Smith Shaw, 3 August 1817

Monday Evening [ante 3 Aug. 1817]

Dear Sir

I am afraid you did not understand me yesterday, when I mentioned, Mr Clarks desire of obtaining orders to the Franklin, this fall. he does not wish to join her, untill she arrives at this Port: if Judge Tudor, or yourself, will then mention his request, to Captain Stewart he will feel obliged to you; it is something new for me to play the Courtier, and the office sits awkwardly upon my shoulders; Mr Clarks services, are well known among those of his profession, and I hope his wishes, will meet with success.

S B Adams.
