Adams Papers

To John Adams from William Bentley, 22 July 1819

Salem. 22 July 1819


I have received your kind letter, informing me of the doubts respecting the M[ecklenburg]. Resolutions. I am persuaded you hold me innocent. I saw the document as represented. I made no use of it, because I know nothing of its authority. At the bottom it was announced to be of known as well as high authority. I have requested my Printer to write to NC on the subject & whatever we hear we will faithfully report to you.

With the highest respect & confidence / your devoted Servant,

William Bentley
