John Adams to Bishop White

24 Sept. 1813

Dear Sir Quincy September 24 1813

I rely entirely on the long and agreeable acquaintance between us, and the knowledge I have had for 34 years, of the Candour & urbanity of your character, as an apology for the liberty I take of introducing to you the Reverend Henry Colman, an established minister of the Congregational Church in Hingham. As a gentleman a Scholar, & a Christian. I am confident you will find him not unworthy of your acquaintance; With a pleasing recollection of past scenes, and high esteem and regard, I remainder Sir your respectful & obedient Servant

John Adams
