Adams Papers

From John Adams to Hezekiah Niles, 27 February 1817

Quincy Feb. 27. 1817


I have been So much gratified with the Specimen of your Register, which you were So kind as to Send me and I recollect So many Extracts from it, that I had Seen in the Newspapers, that I wish to possess the whole.

If you will get the thirteen Volumes, including the Index, decently and Solidly bound, without Elegance and transmitted to me, I will find means to transmit You your own Price.

There are now Communications between Boston and Baltimore, frequent enough, to negotiate this little Business. There is a young Gentleman by the name of Dawes in Baltimore, who I dare Say, would take this Business upon himself.

I will thank you for one Line, containing Yea or nay. Meantime I am with much esteem your / Wellwisher

John Adams.
