MY DEAREST FRIEND,
THE Senate assembled yesterday at eleven, twenty- five members present. The new senators were sworn, and a committee waited on the President, who immediately sent a message with the treaty, which was read, together with part of a volume of negotiations which accompanied it. Mr. Butler and Mr. Green arrived last night, as I hear, so that we shall be very full.
I can form no conjecture of the time when the Sen ate will adjourn. The President and lady, and Miss Nelly, make many kind inquiries concerning you and Mrs. Smith, &c, &c.
Your curiosity, I doubt not, is all alive. But mum mum mum.
Enclosed is a mysterious poem for your amusement.
Yours, as ever,
- John Adams
