3335. FUTURE LIFE, Belief in.—

son found me in a retirement I doat on, living
like an antediluvian patriarch among my
children and grandchildren, and tilling my soil.
As he had lately come from Philadelphia,
Boston, &c., he was able to give me a great deal
of information of what is passing in the world,
and I pestered him with questions pretty much
as our friends Lynch, Nelson, &c., will [pester] us, when we step across the Styx, for they will
wish to know what has been passing above
ground since they left us.—
To Edward Rutledge. Washington ed. iv, 124. Ford ed., vii, 39.
(M. Nov. 1795)
