London Jany 27. 1797

I have recieved no letters from you my friend since yours of the 31st December, and am in hourly expectation of the Mails, five of which are now due— — —

From intelligence lately recieved from America, I may at length write with certainty respecting your Fathers election—there are papers in town which state his being positively elected, by a majority of six votes—Mr. Pinckney is also chosen Vice President— — —

Permit me again to offer my sincere congratulations, on the very flattering distinction shewn your father in his election, for the more arduous the situation, the greater the honor resulting from its faithful discharge, and though it will apparently at this important crisis commence with unpleasantly, I trust its termination will prove a reward, for its present difficulties, and add fresh laurels to his fame— —

Our family have of late been much indisposed but are now recovering fast they desire to be affectionately remembered— —

Adieu my best friend, that you may be happy, is the constant and ardent prayer of your truely faithful,

Louisa C. Johnson
