John Adams to Samuel Miller

24 Sept. 1813

Reverend Sir Quincy September 24th 1813

I know not whether my transient acquaintance, with you, will justify me, or acquit me of indiscretion, in introducing a gentleman to you in this manner. But the Reverend Mr Henry Colman a Congregational minister, beloved & esteemed in this neighbourhood, travelling to the Southward & wishing to see the most eminent, men, I know of none more eminent to whom I could introduce him.

His character is amiable, his talents respectable, he wishes to see New-York, its institutions, and worthy men, any civilities shewn him, will be gratefully acknowledged by Sir your friend and humble Servant

John Adams
