7454. RETIREMENT, Occupations in.—[further continued].

I retire from scenes of
difficulty, anxiety, and of contending passions,
to the elysium of domestic affections, and the
irresponsible direction of my own affairs. Safe
in port myself, I shall look anxiously at my
friends still buffeting the storm, and wish you
all safe in port also.—
To General Armstrong. Washington ed. v, 434.
(W. 1809)
