To John Adams from Thomas Dawes, 7 March 1818

Boston 7th. march 1818

I had this day an opportunity to examine our Town Records. In May 1765 the representatives chosen were James Otis, Thomas Cushing, Oxenbridge Thacher and Thomas Gray.

In May 1766 were chosen James Otis, Thomas Cushing, Samuel Adams and John Hancock.

I am very respectfully

Thomas Dawes.
