John Adams to Benjamin Franklin, 20 Feb. 1786

Grosvenor Square Westminster Feby. 20th 1706.


At the request of Mr. Bridgen I have the honour to inclose to you his letter to the Governor of North Carolina and his letter to me of the 14th. Inst.

As Mr. Bridgen desires some Certificate from me, I am happy to say that from his Universal Reputation and from all I have ever known of him, he has uniformly been an advocate for America; and the friend of her principals [and Cause] as your Excellency has a longer and More particular Acquaintance with him, I dare say your Certificate will be more ample in his favour.

With great respect I have / the honour to be your / most Obedient and / most Humble servt.

John Adams.
