Adams Papers

From George Cabot to Abigail Smith Adams, 9 June 1798

Brookline June 9th. 1798—

Dear Madam—

I cannot suppress the inclination I feel to transmit you a Sermon which gave me infinite pleasure—probably you know that this vicinity has been more infected with the contagious spirit of Revolutionary France than almost any part of Massachusetts.—sagacious people find it easy to apply many of the characters & all agree that Nehemiah deserved well of his country.—I sincerely pray that the U S may always have a Nehemiah & that our people may be never inferior to the Jews.—accept Dear Madam / my unfeigned respect

George Cabot
