Letter to Abigail Adams

President John Adams (1735-1826) and Abigail Smith Adams (1744-1818) exchanged over 1,100 letters, beginning during their courtship in 1762 and continuing throughout President Adam’s political career (until 1801). These warm and informative letters include his descriptions of the Continental Congress and his impressions of Europe while he served in various diplomatic roles, as well as Abigail’s updates about their family, farm, and news of the Revolution’s impact on the Boston area. In this particular letter, transcribed by me in Simplified Gregg, speaks about the Declaration of Independence and his thoughts about its celebration.
