Adams Papers

To John Adams from Daniel Leonard, 30 June 1799

N. York 30 June 1799

Dear Sir

Will you permit me to address you in the stile of our former familiarity? My heart recognises all its former friendship and I flatter myself you sometimes recollect with pleasure our professional intimacy. I had promised myself the honor of again waiting on you before I returned to Bermuda, but was obliged to come to this city with all diligence in order to avail myself of a passage in an armed vessel recommended by Govr. Beckwitts. My son will have the honor of delivering this. My respects, if you please to your Lady.

I am with the highest esteem / and respect, your most humble / Servant

Danl Leonard
