Several times since my return home, I have thought it wd be proper to write you on the subject of the Conversation that took place at your table as both business, & a certain reluctance to resume the subject, have prevented me from enacting this purpose.—Further reflexion has convinced me that justice to myself and to the cause of truth, imposes a duty on me, to vindicate the Olive Branch &...
Your very polite & friendly favour of the 26th. ult. I duly recd. It is before me, & demand my thanks. I enclose the extracts from John Marston’s Communications, which I have had copied for the new Edition. Agreeably to your directions, I send by this day’s Mail, a copy of the Naval History, & shall send two more by the succeeding mails. Accept the assurances of very sincere respect from /...
I have recd & read with great pleausre Your very acceptable letter of the 29th ult. Next to the approbation of a man’s own conscience, that of the enlightened part of mankind, is the greatest reward a correct mind can desire. It has been always my object—”laudari laudatis viris.” And I therefore estimate at a high rate the commendation you are so good to bestow on my efforts to promote the...
Your favour of the 29th. ult. which I recd yesterday, distressed me. I cannot, however, allow myself to believe for a single moment that you anticipated such a consequence. It appears to imply that for the sake of disposing of a few more copies of the Naval History, I had departed from your instructions; & sent states that instead of one per every mail, I had sent two or three. Were I capable...
Your favour of the 28th. ult—is duly recd I believe there is not a copy of the first Volume of the Defence, to be had in the United States, for Sale. This work, revised & corrected, would, I believe, at a future day, bear a small Edition. It is a pity itshould be out of the market I am, very respectfully, / Your obt. hble. servt MHi : Adams Papers.
By last Mail, I sent you a copy of the new Edition, & I now send you two, of which I request your acceptance. I hope this Edition will meet with as much approbation from you, as the former. It has cost the editor much pains & trouble. If it answers no other purpose, it will be of considerable service to future historians. Your obt. hble servt MHi : Adams Papers.
I am sorry to inform you that I cannot procure a copy of The Life of Jackson, of wh this Edition is sold out. I send by this mail a copy of the Olive Branch, of which I request your acceptance. The very brief vindication of the work on the American Constitutions, is contained in page 39. I regret that it is so concise. If you have duplicate copies of any of Your recent newspaper or other...
I have recd your favour of the 20th and should have before now sent you a copy of the Olive Branch; but the first Edition is so very imperfect, having been very much hurried in the execution, that I determined to wait till the second is ready. This will probably be about the middle of next week. Mean while I send you by this opportunity such part of the new one as is ready. You may from thence...
Your favour of the 9th. I have only recd. & Feel gratified that the note in the Olive Branch is satisfactory. It was an amende honorable, called for not only by justice to you & the valuable work it refers to, but a Regard to my own feelings. I have always regarded the acknowledgment of error as more honourable than the defence of truth. For one person capable of the former virtue, there are...
I recd from my venerable & respected friend, Dr Rush, sundry communications from you , forwarded by you for the use of the author of the Naval History, which I have just published. I now return them with thanks. A mistake of the post office prevented the first of them coming early enough to answer the purpose. I request your acceptance of a copy of the work, which I send herewith. Any As it...

Dr James Rush, yesterday, put into my hands your letter of the 30th. ult. which came too late to answer the purpose intended.

I remain, with sincere respect, / your obt. hble Servt MHi : Adams Papers.

Your favour of the 1st. which I recd yesterday, is before me. I observe its contents. While I sympathize with you in the domestic afflictions which produced the chasm in our correspondence, I must needs observe that your letter gave me sincere pleasure. I was seriously apprehensive that I had inadvertently, in some of my letters, given you offence. I most perfectly accord with you on the...
Absence from home, & want of Leisure, have prevented me returning an earlier answer to your very kind & friendly letter of the 9th. inst. Should any such intermission occur at any time hereafter I rely upon your goodness to ascribe it to the real cause, my being borne down by the pressure of business. It is highly gratifying to find that notwithstanding the various disadvantageous...
It is a long period since I have been favoured with a line from you—which I much regret. A Continuation of the Correspondence wd. have afforded me high gratification. I enclose two half parts of the different Editions of the Olive Branch, wherein I have borne my testimony in favour of your valuable, but much abused work. I remain, respectfully, / Your obt. hble. Servt MHi : Adams Papers.
When I wrote you last, I had not only considered the contents of the letter to which I replied—& therefore deem it necessary to make some addition to it On the subject of the Western insurrection, the Olive Branch contains some animadversions, sufficiently caustic, as I am persuaded you will allow, if you examine them. But had I been wholly silent on this tender topic, it wd. have been no...
Agreeably to Your instructions, I have forwarded three copies of the Naval History. I have likewise taken the liberty to forward you several Copies of a Circular, requesting nautical Communications, which, if you judge it proper, I request you will be have conveyed to suitable persons.

I remain, very respectfully, / your obt. hble. servt MHi : Adams Papers.
I send you by this Mail, & request your acceptance of, some of my recent publications, in the defence of the only true interest of the Country, so lamentably ill understood by our statesmen.

AL : American Philosophical Society This brief undated note, Carey’s first extant letter to Franklin and the only one we know that either man sent the other during the year Carey lived in France and worked for Franklin as a printer, has bedeviled the editors of these papers since we first considered publishing it in Volume 31. The dating of this letter hinges on when Carey was actually in...

Your favour of the 29 th ult. I have duly rec d . It is now before me. The fifteen Dollars enclosed are duly carried to your credit. The Religious Olive Branch is not yet fairly begun.
