Adams Papers

Louisa Catherine Johnson to John Quincy Adams, 27 May 1797

My father writes this day, by a Vessel to Rotterdam, and though I wrote yesterday, I cannot omit reapeating to day, the pleasure I feel at the prospect of our meeting— —Your letter gave me infinite satisfaction, as the assurance of your not remaining long absent, from your own Country, greatly softens the pain of parting from my family— —I do not fear [any] meeting with any inconvenience, in the Vessel papa has provided, which he is carefully fitting up, for your accommodation— —

Mama, and my Sisters, desire me to tell you they hope to see you soon—Adieu, believe me ever your sincerely attached, and faithfully affectionate

Louisa C. Johnson
