Adams Papers

To John Adams from Henry Channing, 27 January 1819

Boston January 27th 1819

Dear Sir

Permit me to ask your acceptance of the enclosed Register. It contains the Constitution of Connecticut, also exhibits the arrangement of the government & fiscal concerns of that State, which may not be uninteresting.

I cannot forbear mentioning the high gratification afforded me, yesterday, by the opportunity of again seeing and conversing with one whom I venerate and love, whose devotion and services to his beloved country, will live with me in grateful remembrance, till I sleep with my fathers.

In your recent sorrows, your numerous friends have deeply shared. Your consolations appear to have enabled you to triumph in hope, and submissively meet the will of a Father, whose tender mercies never [fa]il.—I am Sir, / Very Respectfully & Affecty / Your Obedt Servt

Henry Channing
