Letter from John Adams to Abigail Adams, 11 June 1795, "I have received yours . . ."


My Dearest Friend

I have received yours of the 10th and a Cordial it was, for I began to be fearful for your health.

Louisa is a good Girl for writing such comfortable Accounts from home. I believe the Farm looks well.

I am grieved for my Dear Johnny. He must go home with Us for northern Air.

My Love to all. When I shall get away from the City is uncertain: but I have no hopes of being excused before the End of next Week. The Treaty is of great Extent and Importance and will not be rejected nor adopted without a thorough Examination. I presume every Member will wish for such an Investigation as will enable him to render a Reason for his Vote whether Pro or Con.

I am as ever
J. A.
