John Quincy Adams to Thomas Boylston Adams

1 Nov. 1795

My Dear Brother Helvoet Novr: 1. 1795.

The weather since I wrote you last has been almost a continual gale of wind, and the ship has met with divers mishaps that may detain us I know not how much longer yet. I am in a fair way however to procure another opportunity for passage

The letter enclosed is as usual to be copied and forwarded. I find means you see to employ part of my time; but I came away with scarce any books, and I cannot here get so much as newspapers. If you please you may send me by return of post the two last Leyden Gazette’s

Your affectionate brother

John Q. Adams.
