Boston June 9th 1821
Through the politeness of your Nephew Mr Shaw, I have the pleasure to present you with an implement in domestic economy, which perhaps in some of its parts <
parts> may be considered novel, especially in the case with which it is separated, and consequently kept clean; a circumstance not common to those which I have heretofore seen; although, professedly designed to effect the same purposes.
As an individual thing it is hardly worth accepting, but when applied to a nation, the aggregate of its savings makes it an object of more consideration; from that circumstance, I beg Sir you would accept it, and, should you consider it deserving public patronage I should be glad of opinion on it.
With sentiments of profund / Respect, I am Sir / Your obedient Sservt
MHi: Adams Papers.
