Adams Papers

From John Adams to Francis Dana, 3 December 1798

Philadelphia Dec 3d. [1798]

Dear Sir

I return you the address and my answer. I did receive an address from the sixth regiment in Gen Hulls division, which I sent on to Mr McHenry to answer according to law and usage. I will enquire what he has done.

I return your hearty congratulations on the magnificent victory of Nelson. I believe it is without a precedent or parallel

I am Sir with great regard

John Adams
