Adams Papers

From John Adams to William Wirt, 18 July 1818

Quincy July 18. 1818

Dear Sir

Accept a Morsell of ancient Massachusetts Letterature: and will you be pleased to compare it with Mr Henry’s Argument against the Parsons.

It was preached and printed in 1749–50 and reprinted in England. It made a great Noise in New England and in old.

Pray Sir will you do me the favour to point out the Errors and faults in it. Be assured you will very much oblige your real Well Wisher

John Adams.
