John Adams to Abigail Adams

23 Apr. 1796

My Dearest Friend Phil. 23. Ap. 96

The H. of R. is as determin’d as ever according to all Appearances.

When the Question will be taken I know not. They have no Bowells for their Country. Three Mass. Men are among the most obstinate and obdurate.

I believe it will be best to excuse Copeland from the service but I leave it to you to do as you think best.

I am most affectionately
