Baltimore, Jan 30th 1818
I was favored with your communication in due time, and have gratefully published it in this day’s Register—of which a copy is herewith transmitted.
I am much mistaken if the public will not feel greatly indebted to you for this sketch of the character & conduct of a man so distinguished as Mr. Otis.
When your inclination wills it, I will thankfully receive, & I trust pay due respect to, any such or similar communications that you may honor me with being made the instrument of giving to the public.
Your lady will see that I have noticed here letter—I hope in a satisfactory manner.
With honest respect / & sincere veneration, / Yours
MHi: Adams Papers.
