Adams Papers

From John Adams to Hendrick W. Gordon, 1 July 1813

Quincy July 1 1813

Dear Sir

Your kind letter of the 28th and 29th are before me. The report that my son, has written or said that, “The present War is unnecessary and unjust.” is wholly unfounded.

Your obliging offer, to send our Letters by Captain William Story to St. Petersburgh will be accepted with gratitude to both. I am Sir your obliged Friend
