Putnam that Boston was to be open'd and all that chose to come out had leave off, so I hope you will make us a visit. Your advice is much wanted. If things are to continue in this situation a week or months, your Farm must be put into other hands. It will not suit me to stay here after Judge Denforth moves, and he is to have a pass to-day to go where and when he pleases.If the report should be false about Boston being open, I should be glad to see you at Mr. Russell's. No doubt you can have leave to come over the ferry.-- 191 --I send this by a boy who can inform you very particularly how we have lived and managed since you left us. It will not do to write much. Adieu.Boyd was here all night. Mrs. Barnes is very well and writes in fine spirits. Every thing there goes on finely. She wants rum and sugar sadly. Captain Ward has gone up, and has orders from head quarters to protect her.
