Adams Papers

From John Adams to Timothy Pickering, 19 July 1799

Quincy July 19th 1799


I have received your favor of the 11th & have read Mr. Davis’s letter inclosed in it of June 29th. My own opinion coincideing with yours & his, I have signed & now inclose the pardon of John Scotchar, not however without some serious apprehensions of the consequences of tenderness, for cases of such dangerous example.
