Adams Papers

Richard Price to John Adams, 21 Sep. 1786

Newington-Green Sept 21st: 1786

Dear Sir

The attention with which you have honoured me will not Suffer me to neglect informing you of an event which at present overwhelms my Spirits. After enjoying thirty years of happines with my dear wife, She was yesterday dismiss’d from this world after long languishing under the Palsy. This is the greatest trouble I have ever met with. It will much alter the plan of my life, and interrupt for at least Some time my public Services—Deliver my kind respects to Mrs Adams, and also to Coll Smith and Mrs Smith. May you and them enjoy all possible happiness. Under a grateful Sense of your friendship I am, Dear Sir, / truly yours

Richd: Price
