I cannot say positively where the paper, I lately sent you, was found—There are here some files of letters &c. which were saved from the wreck of Governor Hutchinson’s library—I am inclined to think, I found it among them—But why should he have it? Perhaps his friend, to whom it was addressed, gave him a copy—This is probably a copy—there being no signature to it—By your remarks, I perceive...
Mr Shaw has suggested to me the propriety of omitting (in the proposed Vol. of Masstts. State papers) the long altercation between Govr. Hutchinson & the House of Rep. respecting the holding of the Genl. Court at Cambridge, or any where out of Boston—I had, before he spoke to me on the subject, thought it would not be necessary to publish that controversy any further, than one communication on...
Permit me to introduce to you Judge Thatcher of Thomaston, Maine, who married a daughter of the late Genl. Knox—& who has a Son, that he wishes to have an appointment, as Midshipman in the navy— Judge Thatcher is a Gentleman of education & high standing in Society— very respectfully MHi : Adams Papers.
In your letter to me of Octo. last, for which I beg you accept my very respectful acknowledgements, you were pleased to recommend, that a pamphlet, “called an appeal to the world, in vindication of the town of Boston from the aspersions &c of Govr. Bernard & others” printed in the autumn of 1769, should also be inserted in the Vol. which I proposed to publish—And you observed, that it was the...
I am much obliged by the information & advice given in your Note of the 5th. instant—I hope I have not deviated materially in my plan from your views on the subject—In most instances, I have given, by way of note, the names of Committees, who prepared & reported the documents printed; especially the important ones—But it is not my intention to say who of the Committee was the writer—It would...
You will oblige me very much, by giving me an account of the discussion between yourself & Genl. Brattle in Jany 1773 respecting the Judges’ tenure of office &c I wish to give a correct & full view of that controversy—what passed between the Genl. Assembly & the Govr. I have—But wish also to know the particular points discussed by you with M Brattle—Excuse my giving you this trouble: & accept,...
I have a wish to learn who was the writer of the enclosed—There are some just distinctions made, which are not unlike those suggested by James Otis in his Rights of the Colonies in 1764—This, I think, was several years later—& occasioned by a Speech of Hutchinson, who had asserted the Supreme & unlimited power of Parliament; & thence inferd. the duty of submission to its acts, however unjust,...
The enclosed should have been forwarded sooner; but by some accident was overlooked. No assurances can be necessary to convince you, Sir, of the peculiar gratification your presence would afford, if your health & strength should permit. For all are deeply sensible of your great influence in securing the Indepence we celebrate; and all unite in feelings of the highest respect for yourself &...
I have thot it would be a useful & acceptable service to have published in a volume, the Speeches of the Governors of the Province of Massachusetts from 1765 to 1775; & the answers to those speeches by the House of Representatives, together with other addresses of the Representatives to the people, in the same period, touching the controversy between the Colonies & the the King & Parliament of...
I have the honor to transmit you a card of Invitation for celebrating the anniversary of the Declaration of our National Independence, in the establishment of which You performed such a conspicuous and influential part—and of whose disinterested & patriotic services, with those of your associates in this glorious work of freedom, I trust present & future generations will cherish the most...
