Adams Papers

From John Adams to Benjamin Rush, 28 February 1788

London Feb. 28. 1788.

My Dear Friend,—

The Letter that accompanies this, is from a Character so respectable, that I beg leave to recommend it to your particular attention.

The Correspondent will be found worthy of you. I have taken Leave, and shall embark, as soon as the Equinoxial and its roughest Blusters are past.

The Emperors Declaration of War announces louder storms in Europe: but I hope to escape them all in a peaceful Harbour at Braintree.

Yours affectionately

John Adams.
