John Quincy Adams to Elizabeth Cranch

[salute] My Dear Cousin

by your desire I now sit down to write a few lines to you and not yet having wrote to you I cannot let this oportunity pass without writing. my Pappa has received two or three packets from my mamma in which she said our family and Freinds were all well as I hope this will find them. I have nothing material to write having given an account of my voyage and travels to my Mamma. I am your affectionate Cousin
[signed] John Quincy Adams
