Philadelphia, 9 June, 1795.

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,

J. A.
