6. In response to his letters of inquiry after JQA's whereabouts that he sent northward in early February (see JA to AA, 4 Feb., note 5
, above), JA received several replies in March. Two from Dumas, 18 and 28 March (both Adams Papers
) relayed the favorable impressions that JQA had made on several important persons at Copenhagen and Hamburg. A 28 Feb. letter from Mr. Brandenburg of Stockholm (Adams Papers
), sent independently of JA's inquiries, concurred in this judgment of young JQA.
