Adams Papers

Louisa Catherine Johnson to John Quincy Adams, 21 Apr. 1797

London April 2[1]th 1797

I yesterday recieved your letter of the 7th instant which afforded me very great satisfaction— —

We cannot leave this Country untill July—much do I wish it could secure to us the means of meeting here, but I apprehend as you do, that it will be impossible, I have ceased to indulge such a hope, and am infinitely more reconciled to our departure, which I fear is inevitable.— —

I am sorroy I mentioned, having read Lord Chesterfields letters, as it appears to have displeased you, which I always endeavor to avoid— — —I shall certainly read the books you recommend with attention, and endeavor to improve myself, that I may become a fit companion for my beloved friend— — —

Mr Hall talked of visitting you, but I [have] heared nothing of it since I mentioned it to you, therefore I suppose he has ceased to think of it—

Mama, and my Sisters, send their love— /Adieu, believe me most sincerely yours

Louisa C. Johnson
