John Adams to Abigail Adams

24 Feb. 1797

My dearest Friend Philadelphia Feb. 24. 1797

The Presbyterian Congregation have voted me the front Pew in their Church for my Family. It is an elegant new Building and the Pew is large

I have bought me a Pair of Young Horses for a Carriage and a saddle horse.

The Birthday was affecting and the Night Splendid but tedious to those who were too old to dance.

I have now Settled all my Accounts with the senate as you will see by the inclosed Papers.

I assure you it was a tender Scene at parting. How do you like our Adieus alias Farewells. Nothing yet determined about House or Furniture. Yours with a great desire to be with you, but it is impossible 

John Adams

RC (MHi: Adams Papers).
