My dearest Friend
I Yesterday took Leave of the Senate all in very good humour. I have many things to do and more to think of.
I gave Mrs. W. your Letter Yesterday.
I approve of Letting Quincys Meadow with the other Place and the Thatch Bank too: but not the Salt Marsh below Jona. Baxters. That is too good, to let unless it be to the halves to pay half the Taxes too.
I hope you will get Mears but fear you will not. I believe We must contrive to get Mr. Brislers Family along here to keep House while I go home. The Ministers are of opinion that the Business can be done, at Quincy as well as here, conveyed by Post. But I cannot yet determine any Thing. I wish you to make your Arrangements as soon as possible.
