Letter from John Adams to Abigail Adams, 1 January 1795


My Dearest Friend

I wish you a happy New Year, and a Repetition of happy New Years as long as Time shall endure: not here below, because I shall want you in another Country, better than this.

What do you say? Shall I keep a national Thanksgiving with you? I hope before that Day We shall have good News from all our Family, tho We cannot be all together.

Compliments of the Season to Louisa and all my good friends. Dont forget my farm next time you write. I hope to find a Letter at the Senate Chamber.

Adieu.
