Letter from John Adams to Abigail Adams, 5 May 1796


My Dearest Friend

As I have obtained Leave of Absence After this day and shall sett out on my return home tomorrow morning, You will not write me after the Receipt of this Letter. I shall get home as fast as possible, Spending a few days with The Children at N York.

Yesterday was a Day of Universal and perpetual Peace. All the Treaty Hills passed both Houses and good Humour seems to be returning. I wrote our sons this morning by Mr. Cooke of Mary land bound to Europe. I have not been on Horse or in Carriage more than once or twice since I arrived here and I dread the Journey: It will however be sweetened by delicious hopes.

J.A.

Mrs A
