To John Adams from Henry Bond, 17 June 1824

Philada June 17th. 1824

Honored and venerable Sir,

presuming no one living to be better acquainted than yourself with that period of our history, to which this discourse cheifly refers, or feels a livelier personal interest in it, I have ventured, tho a stranger, to send you my Address. Its literary exeortion gives it no claim on your attention, but the subject may, perhaps, interest you for a few moments. I will not doubt but my object will commend itself to your heart & head. With the best wishes that Providence may smile on you and Your’s I am very respectfully—

Henry Bond
