Letter from John Adams to Abigail Adams, 27 April 1794


My dearest Friend

The Inclosed Pamphlet has afforded me so much entertainment that I cannot but send it to you.

The Writings upon Prophecys must comprehend so much Knowledge of History, Geography &c. as well as Philosophy, Morality and Divinity that if my Eyes were not weak and those Writings were no so voluminous I think I should undertake to read them all.

Thomas is to begin his Journey with his Master this afternoon or Tomorrow Morning. As he will not return till June, I shall not probably see him again till next fall. He is enquiring for an Office, in Town.

I cannot be confident that I can leave this City before June. But nothing shall prevent my leaving it before the tenth of that Month. I see no Reason however why Congress should Sit beyond the middle of May.

Adieu.
J.A.

Mrs. A.

Pray is Mr. Crach Postmaster or not?
