My Dearest Friend
The Senate is to meet at Ten, this morning and I hope will finish: but it is still uncertain. I shall sett out this Afternoon, provided the Senate rises. But I shall not be able to reach New York by tomorrow night. If I am not restrained from riding on Sunday I may arrive on that day: But on Sunday or Monday I think, barring Accidents, you may expect me. I have been detained so long, the hot weather advances so rapidly and our Attention at home is so much wanted that We must take Leave the next morning after my Arrival in N.Y.
I shall say nothing of Public affairs because the least said is soonest amended.
