My dearest Friend
This Moment I received your favour of Octr. 6. [Abigail to John, 06 October 1777] by Mr. Niles. -- I am as well as can be expected.
We have no News, but such as is old to you.
I congratulate you on the great and glorious Events in the northern Department. Congress have ordered a Thanksgiving, and have done great Honour to the Officers.
We shall finish the Confederation in a few days.
