Weary of Reading Newspapers

John Adams, letter to Abigail Adams (February 27, 1793):
I am weary of reading Newspapers. The Times are so full of Events, the whole Drama of the World is such a Tragedy that I am weary of the Spectacle. Oh my Sweet little farm, what would I not give to enjoy thee without Interruption?
Adams echoes Horace, Satires 2.6.60 (o rus, quando ego te adspiciam...).
