Missing the performance of my Record I arose very early indeed and went out to fish with John. The weather became bad very soon which drove us down to the Bridge by way of protection where we found excellent sport. On my return I was agreeably surprised by another letter from Abby, with an inclosure from Harriet Welsh.1 Very much fatigued.


Concerned over GWA’s unsteady habits and over his distaste “for his office as a law place,” Harriet Welsh advised CFA to persuade his brother to come to Washington for the summer (Harriet Welsh to CFA, 11 May 1827, Adams Papers).
