To John Quincy Adams

Montpellier May 14. 1821

Dear Sir

I have received the Copy of your Report on weights and measures, which you were so good as to inclose to me.1

Not knowing how long it may be before I shall be able to give it a due perusal, I tender at once my best thanks, anticipating as I certainly do, both pleasure and instruction from your execution of the important task committed to you. Be pleased, Sir, to accept a repetition of my high esteem and cordial respects.
