[dateline] Boston Novr. 29th. 1779
[salute] Dear Madm.
Mr. Adams gave me real Pleasure when he told me it was in my Power to render any Service
to himself or his Family, therefore any Apology from you was needless.
The fluctuating or rather the Ebbing State of our paper Medium is such that to exchange
More Silver than you may want for a fortnights Use, may be prejudicial—and oftentimes
a better bargain may be made with the Silver than any other way. At present Thirty
paper are given for one Mill'd Dollr. You'l therefore freely send Directions what
Money you'd exchange and the best Advance I can obtain shall be sent you.
[salute] I am with Esteem Your very Hume. Servt.,
[signed] O. Wendell
Mrs. Wendell presents her Regards.
