|My Dear Brother||London January 14. 1796.|
Mr Pinckney has arrived in England and is expected in town this day or to-morrow: as I have therefore nothing further to do here, I shall take the first opportunity to return to the Hague, and hope to see you in the course of a week or ten days.—I shall bring some news-papers with me; but since the adjournment of Parliament they contain so little intelligence that they are not worth sending you.—You have enclosed some letters for you lately received from America, and one to the Baron de Schubart, that was sent to me a few days ago.—I shall myself execute the commissions from your mother and Doctor Welsh.
I remain with usual affection, your brother
John Q. Adams.
