My Dearest Friend
I am grieved beyond measure at your returned indisposition: but hope it will not be long. Your sons arrival I hope will raise your Spirits and give you strength.
To Day I [illegible] find the Weather pleasant and must take a Walk. Mrs. Cushing hopes to see you in a month. The Court rises tomorrow. I am afraid I cannot see you so soon.
I shall have Business enough after Congress is up. Forreign affairs, Army, Navy &c. &c.
This Week and the next are all the Congress can sitt. We will send you some Grass seeds. Richard does very well. I will not lett Belchers place go with the other for 45. Dr. Tufts may draw for any sum he pleases in reason.
Your anxious & affectionate
