Adams Papers

From John Adams to Oliver Wolcott, Jr., 2 August 1799

Quincy Aug 2d 1799


I have received your report of the 24th of July 24th & have read the documents which attended to it, & now return them all to you. I agree with you, that a new appointment of a collector of Alexandria appears to be indispensibly required by the public interests. I hope we shall obtain information of the best character for a successor.
