To John Adams from Hannah Adams, November 1817

To the Hon. John Adams, LL. D. Formerly President of the United States.

Boston, November, 1817.

Sir,

Sensible of the honour I received by your permitting me to prefix your name to the second and third editions of this work, I am desirous that the present should appear under the same respectable and distinguished patronage.

The talents and virtues which you have exhibited, both in public and private life, will, I trust, be duly appreciated by the rising generation; and it is my ardent wish, that your ability and integrity may be perpetuated in your descendants. I am most respectfully, / Sir, your most obliged / and very humble servant,

Hannah Adams.
