John Quincy Adams to Louisa Catherine Johnson

5 Feb. 1797

The Hague February 5. 1797.

I send you by Mr: Bourne, who has the goodness to take charge of the small package, the four etui-cases for your little Sisters, according to your desire in one of your late Letters. I have \added/ at the same time a smelling bottle, destined for your Mamma, a pair of ear-rings for your Sister Nancy, and a ring, for Caroline, all of which, I depend upon your kindness and influence to make acceptable. There [...] [a]lso a pair of bracelets, which I entreat you to accept for yourself.—These trifles I hope [. . . ]epting the last, acquire a value by passing through your hands, and your affection [. . . ] estimate that, not by its real insignifance, but as a token of the constant and tender attachment of your friend.
