Adams Papers

From John Adams to John Thornton Kirkland, 10 July 1816

Quincy July 10. 1816

Dear Sir

I have written to my Son and enclosed your Letter of the 4th. which will be the best recommendation of mr Bigalow that can be written.

Though it was a Small Sum that my Scanty Fortune and indigent Family permitted me to Subscribe to your Theological Establishment; I never did any thing with more Satisfaction than by contributing a mite towards removing Some of the Shackles of the human Mind.

My humble Subscription Shall be advanced whenever it is called for, by your undisguised Friend, and very humble / Servant

John Adams
