John Adams to Edward Augustus Holyoke, 26 Jun. 1786

June 26, 1786—

Sir—

About the time of the proposition of a Correspondence between your society and the Royal society of Medicine at Paris, I made a similar overture to the Royal Academy of Chirurgery, & met with a reception equally encouraging, but having never received from Mr. Louis the Perpetual secretary, any thing in writing I supposed it was forgotten or neglected—it is but a few Day’s since the inclosd extract from the registers of the Royal Accademy of Chirurgery was sent to me from Paris, and I embrace the first oppertunity of doing myself the honor of transmitting it to you, to be laid before the medical society of which you are President—

Yours

J. A—
