Adams Papers

To John Adams from Nathaniel Niles, 30 January 1818

Baltimore, Jan 30th 1818

Hon. Sir,

I was favored with your communication in due time, and have gratefully published it in this day’s Register—of which a copy is herewith transmitted.

I am much mistaken if the public will not feel greatly indebted to you for this sketch of the character & conduct of a man so distinguished as Mr. Otis.

When your inclination wills it, I will thankfully receive, & I trust pay due respect to, any such or similar communications that you may honor me with being made the instrument of giving to the public.

Your lady will see that I have noticed here letter—I hope in a satisfactory manner.

With honest respect / & sincere veneration, / Yours

N Niles
