Adams Papers

To John Adams from Jeremy Belknap, 30 May 1789

Boston May 30, 1789


I should not have thought of troubling you with the inclosed sermon, if it had not been suggested to me by a friend who heard it that it seemed to be formed on the principles which were advanced in your defence of the American Constitutions and to recommend such Checks and Balances in Ecclesiastical as you had thought necessary in civil Government. If in this view of it, or any other it may be acceptable I shall think myself honoured, & am / Sir / with the greatest respect / Your very humble Servant

Jeremy Belknap.
