John Quincy Adams to Thomas Boylston Adams

15 May 1796

My dear Brother London May 15th: 1796.

Your Letter of the 21st: ulto: enclosing the assignmemt has not yet reached me, and you may judge with how much Patience I am expecting it, since this is the second opportunity, that I lose for returning merely from the want of money to pay my debts here, and my passage back.—It is indeed somewhat singular that I do not receive that Letter, for that of the 28th: I have had more than ten days.

If it has miscarried something further must be done, and I will thank you to procure immediately a duplicate of the assignment, and forward it by the earliest possible opportunity.

The Packet of Newspapers which I meant to send you by Mr: Marshall, was sent to his house half an hour too late. I now send it with the addition of the subsequent papers. Mr: Clarke has another letter for you almost a month old.

I remain your affectionate brother

John Q. Adams.
