Worcester December 31st: 1822
My Dear Sir,
Knowing your intimate acquaintance with subjects of divinity, and believing that no individual has a more correct knowledge of the history of theology in our country than yourself, I presume to offer to your acceptance a volume of sermons. I present them, not on account of their worth, but as a token of personal respect.
Fervently praying that you may on earth enjoy the consolations & comforts of religion, and in heaven be admitted to its immortal rewards,
I am with the most respectful sentiments / Your obedient servant
MHi: Adams Papers.
