Letter from John Adams to Abigail Adams, 9 February 1797


My dearest Friend

The Die is cast, and you must prepare your self for honourable Tryals.

I must wait to know whether Congress will do any Thing or not to furnish my House. If they do not I will have no House before next Fall and then a very moderate one, with very moderate Furniture.

The Prisoners from Algiers arrived Yesterday in this City, in good health and looking very well. Captn. Stevens is among them. One Woman rushed into the Crowd and picked out her Husband, whom she had not seen for 12 Years.

I am and ever shall be yours and no others.

J.A.

Mr. Sullivan and young Johnson are to breakfast with me.
