Adams Papers

From John Quincy Adams to Thomas Boylston Adams, 30 May 1799

Berlin. 30th: May. 1799

My dear Brother.

I enclose herewith, a letter for Messrs: Jennings & Woddrop of Charlestown, which I will thank you to forward to them & to send them at the same time Six dollars, which you will charge to me—I suppose you will easily find an opportunity, & be sure to send the dollars with the letter, for it is to repay money, which they have advanced, to comply with a request from me, & I know not otherwise how to remit it. I have received from the person here the amount, who desired the certificate, as you may perhaps remember.

You will also find enclosed a Letter from Mr T F Inberg to me, with an account against Mr Thomas Herman Leuffer of Philadelphia, & a letter to Mr Leuffer, directing him to pay the account to my attorney—In the letter of Mr Inberg to me, he requests that if Leuffer should refuse payment he may be sued & compelled to pay the account & all the costs & charges; but there may be circumstances to render that impossible, you may merely inform Leuffer that he will be sued if he does not pay, & then write me, what his circumstances are, as also for a formal power from Inberg to you, if necessary, & an authentication of the account.—If he pays you the money, give me notice of it, & keep it on my account. I will in that case pay the amount to Mr Inberg here.

I wrote you some time ago, requesting your attention to the affair of Mr Bluch, concerning which you will doubtless find the necessary papers at the Secretary of State’s office. Perhaps I shall send you some further papers concerning it before long.

I am your affectionate brother.
