Title
[Document, 1779 February 16]
Abstract
Jay finds Livingston's letter of February 3 a combination of resignation, complaint and joyless sensibility. A mind unbraced and nerves relaxed are not fit company for each other. Rural scenes fly at the approach of war. A man should condescend to keep himself free from fleas and wasps as well as robbers. Come to see us. Your friends have not forgotten you.
