Louisa Catherine Johnson to John Quincy Adams

6 Jan. 1797

London Janry. 6th 1797

I have just learnt that Papa had acquainted you with my indisposition. I was very ill but am now much recovered as a proof of which, I was able to partake of a very agreeable dance given by Mr: Murdoch. You know my beloved friend, how soon my dear Father is alarmed, therefore hope in a degree; you will attribute ithis fears to a too tender anxiety for his Children— — —

I am daily recovering my health and spirits, and hope in time to be able entirely to conquer unavailing grief— — —

We have lately heard from Boston, and I understand that Mr.Hubbard is Married to a Miss Paterson, and that Miss Mary Foster will shortly be united to Mr. Abthorpe— —

I am so fatigued I cannot write to day but will make my next longer— — I should be obliged to you to send me three or four Etweecases for my little Sisters, by the first person who may come— —

While writing this I have recieved yours of the 13th \which/ affords me great pleasure, time will not at present allow me fully to acknowledge it—must therefore yield to its all powerful sway— —

Adieu remember me affectionately and believe\ me/ your most faithful and tender friend

L. C. J.
