Letter from John Adams to Abigail Adams, 18 May 1789
May 18 1789
My dearest Friend
I am in such a Situation that I cannot see the Way clear for you to come on, till some resolution is passed in the House. You will be as ready as you can, and I will write you the Moment to come on any Thing is done. I will resign my office rather than bring you here to be miserable.
