The following letter was addressed by a
member of Congress to Ins wife, din ing the
administration of President John Adams. If
d'scribcs a dinner at the Presidents House,
and tjives a j (leasing illustration of the do
mestic economy of that period :
Philadelphia, June oth, 1707.
My Dear Mariu I wrote you a few lines
yesterday, and promised you a long letter by
this day's mail. The grounds of vOcf promise
were, that' hnving linel at the President's, I
certainly could not lack for materials to com
pose o very handsome letter indeed, and one
of no small imp ortanoo. Our House were so
earnestly engaged in debating the question
4 whether a mm has a right to defend himself
when at tack id by robbsrs or assassin" that
we did not adjourn until after 4 o'clock (the
hour at watch we were to dine.) We there
lore, went straight from the House of Repre
sentatives to the Presidents and were introdu
ced by name to the President, who shook us
by the hand, and then he introduced us to
Mis. Adams, who rose up to receive our bow.
We then sat down, and the waiter handed
round a glass of punch, which, permit me to
say, wa very agreeable, after having sat for
five long hours, hearing a very dry debate on a
very clear subject. In a few minutes dinner
was announced, and one of the gentlemen
handed Mrs. AdamS into the dining room.
The J 'resident followed, and the company
followed him. Mrs. Adams sat at the head
of the table, and the Secretary at the foot,
and the President sat at one sib near the
middle. The company took their seats alt
ifether promiscuously, except that the Chap
lain of our House, who said grace, sat at Mrs.
Adams's right hand. Grace having heen said
before we took our seats, We had nothing to do
but to attend to our business. Uut here it is
necessary to give a description of the bill of
fare, and the arrangement of the board ; but I
am very much afraid th:vt-d shall not only be
inaccurate, but that I shall fail in giing a
brilliant and interesting description of this
important subject. As I wish, however, to be
as good as my word, I shall attempt it. There
were about 20 persons at table. The utensils
were only common blue china plates, glass
tumblers, and wine-glasses. The table was
decorated or garnished with glass stands, five
in number. On the two extremes were dishes
of only common left ace or salad ; next to
these, towards the centre, at each cud, was a
piece of pastry work, resembling a large cake
baked in a tin pan, and turned upside down
and decorated with rose bods just opening.
In the centre there was a large cake of the
same forin, but it was iinaustated on the out
side with a fine white frosted surface, spangled
with sugar plums in the shape of cocked hats,
radishes, A. -.-.
The dishes were nine or ten in number, viz,
at the head a piece of beef a la. mode ; at the
foot, a large roast pig, then, alternately, fish, a
leg of mutton, tongue, boiled fowls, ham, corn
ed beef, a dish of small birds, chicken pie, and
perhaps two dishes more; I cannot be certain.
All these, however, were preceded by soup,
not calf s-head, but common. The vegetables
were peas, salad, potatoes new ones but very
small, cranberry sauce. The desert: tarts,
custards, jellies, ice cream, blanc mange,
Strawberries, cherries, (very iior,) raisins, al
monds, fce. And the wines: Madeira and
Mrs. Adams was very sociable, and helped
to carve, fcc.The President carved the ham,
which was before him, and was very at
tentive to alibis guests. After a few glasses,
Mrs. Adams withdrew with her daughter, Col.
V. S. Smith's wife, who said nothing that 1
heard all the time she sat at table. We drank
the United States, and then no toasts or senti
ments, but did just :is we pleased, and took a
I' rench leave when it suited. The President
told the gentlemen, as he saw them retire, that
there was cotl'ee above, if they chose it. The
day was hot, and 1 believe but few went up. I
sat until there were but three or four left, and
Great Men's Dancing. We read that
Napoleon was a very awkward dancer. On
one occasion he danced with a very beauti
ful countess, who could not conceal her
biushes at his ridiculous postures. On lead
ing her to her seat, he remarked: "The
fact is, madam, that my forte lies not so
much in dancing myself as in making others
dance." This reminds us of an anecdote of
Daniel Webster, who being present at a ball
in Washington, during the period of Ids in
cumbency as Secretary of State, was asked by
an effeminate, foppish sort of a chap, who
thought a good deal of his own dancing,
"Don't you dance, Mr. Webster? I never
see you dancing." "No," said Mr. AVcbstcr,
as he only c uld say and look such things,
"I uever had the capacity to learn how, sir!"
