From Thomas Boylston Adams to William Smith Shaw, 26 December 1800

26th: Decr: 1800

Dear William

I send you a pamphlet for Yourself & one for the Secretary of State which you’ll please to present with my best Compliments—

I have never read a more authentic history of the American Revolution than this little work contains—Strange that a foreigner at 4000 miles distance should understand so much better than 99 hundredths of Americans themselves, the principles on which they contended for Independence—

I am much better to day though I have not ventured out—


T B Adams
