I wish I had better News to tell you; But your Mother has been confined to her Chamber with Sickness for Six Weeks and is Still very feeble. My Eyes are as bad as yours. Winter in this Country is Still Winter, and carries off, at every return a few hundreds of our oldest People.

— John Adams  writes to John Quincy Adams, February 22 1816.
