John Adams to Abigail Adams

16 Feb. 1797

My dearest Friend Phil. 16. Feb. 1797

I Yesterday took Leave of the senate all in very good humour. I have many Things to do and more to think of.

I gave Mrs W. your Letter Yesterday.

A I approve of Letting Quincys Meadow with the other Place and the Thatch Bank too: but not the Salt Marsh below Jona Baxters, that is too good, to let unless it be to the halves to pay half the Taxes too.

I hope you will get Mears but fear you will not. I believe We must contrive to get Mr Brislers Family along here to keep House while I go home. The Ministers are of opinion that the Business can be done, at Quincy as well as here. conveyed by Post. But I cannot yet determine any Thing. I wish you to make your Arrangements as soon as possible
