Abigail Smith to John Adams
Saturday afternoon Boston Octobr. 13. 1764

When I wrote you by the Doctor1 I was in hopes that I should have been out the next day, but my disorder did not leave me as I expected and I am still confind extreemly weak, and I believe low spirited. The Doctor encourages me, tells me I shall be better in a few days. I hope to find his words true, but at present I feel, I dont know how, hardly myself. I would not have the Cart come a tuesday but should be extreemly glad to see you a Monday.

Yours, A Smith2
