I dare not express to you at three hundred miles distance, how ardently I long for your return… An whether the end will be tragical, Heaven only knows. You cannot be, I Know, nor do I wish to see your, an inactive spectator; but if the sword be drawn, I bid adieu to all domestic felicity, and look forward to that country where there are neither wars nor rumors of war, in a firm belief that through the mercy of it’s king we shall both rejoice there together…
Your most affectionate,
~In a letter to John Adams~
If you are so inclined I would suggest looking up the legend of St Valentine. It was kind of interesting to know where we got the holiday, for a long time I had know idea why we made such a big deal about the holiday (and still don't) but now, at least, I know where it came from, and you should too.☺"
