Adams Papers

From John Adams to Samuel L. Mitchell, 13 December 1819

Montezillo December 13th 1819

dear Sir

I rely upon former acquaintance between us—Alass much too slender for me as an apology for the Liberty I take of introducing to you the Reverend Mr Andrew Norton, a Professor of Biblical Critisim in our University

Men of letters and science, ought to be known to each-other in Person, as well as by fame whenever a fair opportunity presents—I flatter myself you will find him every way worthy of your Esteem—

I am Sir with great regard, your friend / and humble Servant

John Adams—
