Dear Sir

Well knowing your love of your Country, and your judicious discrimination in the choice of measures to promote its interest; I presume you will not be displeased, with the enclosed volume.

Be so good as to accept it as a very small expression of gratitude for the many civilities I have received from you.

At the same time your situation may afford, opportunities of improving the work and extending the circulation of it. I am Sir with great Esteem your obliged Friend

John Adams
