Quincy May 21st 1819

my dear Son—

The Revnd. Mr Greenwood the successor of Mr Thatcher and Dr Kirkland in the Church in Summer Street Boston; will deliver you this letter—and altho he is a more liberal Christian than you are—I hope you will receive him with Politeness and Cordial Civility as I have no doubt you will—

George came to us last night and brought me joy and Literature—John & Charles will be here to night or to morrow—and will bring with them gaiety and Gravity, with great pleasure to their decrepit / Grand. Father—

John Adams
