Worthy Partner: The Papers of Martha Washington

By Joseph E. Fields; Martha Washington | Go to book overview

To Hannah Stockton Boudinot

My Dear Madam 1 Mount vernon 15th Jan 84

Your polite and affectionate congratulatory Letter on the termination of our trobles, and the return of the General to domestic life would, under any circumstances; have been highly pleasing to me; but the value of it was particularly enhanced by the friendly terms in which you have conveyed them to us.

In return, permit me to offer you my sincere compliments on your restoration to your own House, after an exile of seven years 2 - and on Miss Boudinots better state of health; 3 which with much pleasure I learnt from the General was considerably amended, if he might be allowed to form a judgment of it from her improved looks. - The difficulties, and distresses to which we have been exposed during the war must now be forgotten. - we must endevor to let our ways be the way of pleasentness and all our paths Peace.

It would give infinite pleasure to see you Mr and Miss Boudinot at this place without which I almost despair of ever enjoying that happyness, as my frequent long journeys have not only left me without inclination to undertake another, but almost disqualified me from doing it, as I find the fatiegue is too much for me to bear.

My little family are all with me; and have been very well till with in these few days, that they have been taken with the measles. - the worst I hope is over, and that I shall soon have them prattling about me again. - with best respects to Mr. Boudenot, and love to Miss Susan and yourself - in which the General joins I am my dear madam with much esteem

Your most affectionate
Friend
Martha Washington
