Adams Papers

John Quincy Adams to Thomas Boylston Adams, 9 May 1797

The Hague 9 May 1797.

My dear Brother.

Messrs: Moliere, will this day extend your credit with their correspondent at Paris, to the amount of 4000 livres more. This I presume will amply suffice for your occasions.

I requested you by my last letter, to be here not later than the 25th: of this month. There is to be a Ball on that day at the Hotel de Suéde. The Count desires me to tell you, that you will be very much wanted as a danser; that he cannot excuse you, and what is more, that if you do not come to attend it, Mlle N will never forgive you.

General Pinckney and his family are gone to Rotterdam. The Fair is not remarkably brilliant. I do not hear as yet of any fête for the peace. I have this day your letter of 15. Floréal.

Mr: König went from this, three or four days after you. If you see him, remember me kindly to him, and to all my other friends at Paris.

Your affectionate brother.
