Adams Papers

From John Adams to James Madison, 21 December 1814

Quincy December 21st 1814

Respected Sir

Knowing the immense weight of your cares, it gives me pain to interrupt you a moment. But when a young Scholar, Lawyer and amiable character asks an introduction from me I cannot refuse it.

Such is George Ticknor Esqr an his travels in his own Country first, and in foreign Countries afterward. He is ranked here, with our Everett & Buckminster, choice spirits, as we think them.

With great esteem

John Adams
