Adams Papers

To John Adams from John Ewing, 18 June 1792

Philada. 18 June 1792

Honourable Sr.

Permit me to introduce to your Notice Mr. Samuel Miller the Son of a much esteemed Clergyman, late of Dover in the Delaware State, and formerly known to you, as I understand, there were some Connections between your Families. He has undertaken a Tour to Boston to learn the political and ecclesiastical State of your Country, before he settles himself in a Pastoral Relation to any Church. He is a young Gentleman of a liberal Education, an amiable moral & religious Character, modest Deportment, & promising Abilities as a Preacher. I need say no more, to secure to him, from the V. President of the united States of America, the Attention, which his more important Business will allow.

I am with the greatest Regard for your public & private Character / honble. Sr. / your most obedt. / & very humble Servt.

John Ewing
