John Quincy Adams to Thomas Boylston Adams

24 Oct. 1795

My dear Brother . Helvoetsluys October 24th 1795.

The Post Master delivered me this evening, the packet containing your letter of yesterday with its enclosures.

I now send you several letters, which I wish you to forward to their respective destinations after copying them into the Public book. You will also send copies of them to the Secretary of the Treasury, with those of the former correspondence on the subject, and from the Bankers of the 21st.

Enquire of the Greffier, whether any thing, and what has been done upon my memorial relative to the Wilmington Packet. Such information as he shall give you, write in answer to Messrs: Condy & Co:. I shall be better able at the term of my voyage to judge whether it will be necessary for you to demand an answer to the memorial, and will write you accordingly. In the mean time you will do well to peruse carefully the papers of the case, and to possess yourself fully of its merits.

As long as the wind continues westerly, you may continue to enclose to the Post Master here such letters as you may receive for me; requesting him to return to you any letter or packet, that may arrive here after my departure. Write me particularly to acknowledge the receipt of this Letter.

Mr. Allis went to Rotterdam this morning, so that I remain here alone. The vessel has not yet come down. While this weather continues I do not regret being on shore. Remember me to all friends, particularly to Baron Bielfeld.

your affectionate brother

 10 A M. Oct r. 25. The wind does not start one point: nor is there any present prospect that it will.
