From John Adams to George Washington, 16 July 1789

Richmond hill July 16. 1789

Dear Sir

The inclosed letters are from two as respectable characters as any in Massachusetts, containing information which I hope has been transmitted to you, through other channels. But as it is possible, it may be otherwise, it is my duty to lay them before you, which I beg leave to do by the bearer Colo: Smith.

With all possible deference and respect I have the honor to be, Sir your / most obedient, <friend>

John Adams
