Abigail Adams to John Adams

4 May 1797

my Dearest Friend Stanford May 4 1797

We reachd here last night and expect to get to East Chester to Dine, Brisler will proceed on to N York and to Philadelphia as soon as possible, I have furnishd him with Money to pay for his carriage and Horses but this dissables me, from paying for my own, which otherways I could have done. So that I cannot leave N York untill I receive from You the Sum I requested you to send me, When I get to East Chester I Shall Send in to N York to See if I have any Letter there, the Roads are so Bad, and the Rains so heavy, since we left Home, that I do not expect to get on to Muckleroys untill Wednesday noon, Brisler thinks he can get me Horses upon a better lay, than these will proceed with, I have directed him to try, and I am to have Word from him to morrow, I shall leave N York on Monday morning

With Sincere desire to meet you soon / in good Health I am ever / Yours

A Adams
