Letter from John Adams to Abigail Adams, 11 June 1795, "If I could take a Walk . . ."


My Dearest Friend

If I could take a Walk or a Ride to N.Y. in the Evening and come here again in the Morning how clever it would be: I am somewhat disappointed in not having received a Line from you since I left you. You are not sick I hope.

Mr. Jay spent last Evening with me and let me into the History of the Treaty and Negotiation, explaining his Views of its intent and operation. I can say nothing upon it at present.

I have read 8 of Mr. A's Dispatches and 14 remain to be read. Govt is much pleased with them.

The Newspapers give you all the Public News.

J. A.
