Adams Papers

To John Adams from John Quincy Adams, 22 March 1802

22. March 1802.

Dear Sir,

The enclosed letter being from Mr: King, I apprehended might enclose one to me, from the gentlemen at Amsterdam; as I had forwarded letters upon your affairs through him to them—I therefore took the liberty of breaking the seal—But finding only open papers within, I now enclose the whole to you—I have not presumed to look into the contents.

Yours faithfully

J. Q. A.
