Quincy Sept 1st 1798


I received but two or three days ago your favor of the 30th of July, inclosing an address of the officers & privates of a troop of horse, organised & equipped at Cincinnati. I perceive with joy & pride a spirit of patriotism & a degree of unanimity prevailing in our country, which annuente numine cannot fail to <[. . .]> insure its safety & secure its prosperity.

I thank you, Sir, for the obliging part you have taken in transmitting this address & ask the favor <to> of you to convey <an answer> a few words by way of answer to it in any <way> manner you shall judge most agreeable.

With great esteem / Sir I have the honor to be / your most obedient & most humble Servant.

John Adams.
