Samuel Allyne Otis to John Adams

7 Oct. 1795

Dear Sir Boston Octr. 7th 1795

In answer to your favor of yesterday, when I hinted at keeping bachelors-hall together I contemplated leaving my family in Boston this winter, but under all circumstances, find it will be expensive to carry them back to our old habitation; there, the pleasure I have had in your company, & a sincere wish to render your situation agreeable, are strong inducements to your accommodation, but for the late addition to my family, & the insuperable difficulty of obtaining tollerable attenedants. I shall however take the earliest opportunity of communicating your wishes to Mr Frances, & every one in my power, of rendering you a gratification.

Mrs Otis joins me in respects to your good lady, & a promise of personally presenting them, prior to our departure, which will probably be in a week or ten days.

I have the honor to be / Sir / Your most humble Sert

Sam A. Otis
