Letter from John Adams to Abigail Adams, 13 November 1794


My Dearest

I have only time to say that I have not yet received a Line from you: but expect one to day. Dined yesterday at Mr. Morris's with Mr. Freir and his English Lady. Young Robert Morris was just arrived from Europe, with Dispatches from Mr. Jay. All is going on well towards a final Settlement as is given out. I know very well however that it all amounts to no more, than was said and promised to me by Pitt, Carmarthen and the King himself. "Pay the Debts and the Posts shall be surrendered and the Negroes paid for." They now Add "the illegal Depredations shall be compensated." Fine weather.

J. A.

I send you an Almanack for 1795.
