    Louisa Adams Autograph Letter Signed ("L. C. A.") with a John Quincy Adams Free Frank ("J. Q. Adams"). One page. The address panel, on the verso of the letter, contains Adams' free frank above a red-stamped "FREE". The letter is postmarked "City of Washington May 14" and "New Orleans La. June 23." The letter reads in full: "Mary and I send all sorts of good wishes my Dear Robert and a most ardent desire to see you released from the tiresome bondage of your present service. Give our love to Thomas and tell we expect his mother and Sister Angier to pay us a visit. All are well here and as impatient to you [see] both as your Aunt." Some complete fold separations affect the text, though not the signatures. Minor staining and some small tears to the edges. The letter is in good condition.
