Louisa Catherine Johnson to John Quincy Adams

26 May 1797

London May 26th 1797

Your letter of the 12th is arrived, and I flatter myself that our difficulties are ended— —

Why my beloved \friend/ did you tell me to choose, what I have always declared, requires not a moments hesitation to determine, no my Adams, I have long ardently wished you might be enabled to return, and I have repeatedly assured you, that no personal inconvenience, would prevent my accompanying you, if possible—need I then say more to convince you, that your return would make me happy, and that I anticipate it with the utmost pleasure—I only fear my friend, that you will find me a troublesome companion— — — —

In regard to your temper &c., I can only say, that the more I know you, the more I admire, esteem, and love you, and the greater is my inclination, to do every thing in my power, to promote your happiness, and welfare— —

Mama, and my sisters, desire their love, and say they hope to see you shortly— —for myself, my best friend, I would say a great deal if I knew how to express it. but it is impossible, and I must simply stile myself, yours unalterably,

Louisa C. Johnson
