890. Philadelphia Independent Gazetteer, 1 July 1788

Extract of a letter from a young lady in Boston, to her friend

at New-York, dated June 17, 1788.

“Patience, patience!—the dogs take the new constitution—it robs us of all those endearing sentences of chit-chat, &c. with which your letters used to be replete, and which we always classed among our choicest treasures. I shall never feel good natured again—Women and politics are often at variance. Oh, my head! Mr. Adams is just arrived, and the bells make such a clattering, that I must bid adieu for the present.”
