To John Adams from John Hancock, 22 April 1789

Boston April 22d—1789—

Dear Sir

I am in hopes before this you are arrived at New York in perfect health—our mutual friend Mr Jeremiah Allen tells me he paid his respects yesterday to Mrs Adams, and she was very well—if during your absence I can be of any service to Mrs Adams or you, it would give me great pleasure—permit me to mention Mr Thomas Melville the present Naval Officer for this port, if you can be of any service to him it may be a public benefit, and a pleasure to me—I need not say any civility or service rendered our friend Allen would be particularly agreable—

I am dear Sir with sentiments of esteem / Your most obedient & Hble Servant

John Hancock
