I was reading an online discussion of love letters and letter writing in general. Someone wrote me a letter recently saying that emails and IMs were ok, but there was nothing like a letter received in the mail. Those two things got me to thinking of my favorite love letters....the letters between John and Abigail Adams. If you should have an Inclination to write to Cadiz, for any Thing by any Vessell going there, Mr. Robert Montgomery, who is settled there I fancy would chearfully send it you, and draw upon me in Paris for his Pay. If any Vessell should go to Corunna, Mr. Michael Lagoanere would do the same, but this is not a likely Way.
I shall write as often as possible: but Conveyances will be very rare, I fear.
I am as I ever was and ever shall be Yours, Yours, Yours.
