8768. VACATIONS, Health and.—

diseases of the season incident to most situations
on the tide waters, now begin to show
themselves here [Washington], and to threaten
some of our members [of the cabinet] together
with the probability of a uniform course of
things in the Chesapeake [affair], induce us
to prepare for leaving this place during the two
sickly months, as well for the purposes of health
as to bestow some little attention to our private
affairs, which is necessary at some time of
every year. Our respective stations will be
fixed and known, so that everything will find
us at them with the same certainty as if they
were here; and such measures of intercourse
will be established as that the public business
will be carried on at them, with all the regularity
and dispatch necessary.—
