3. On 28 June aThe committee was appointed to prepare Declaration, & C. Bring in draught, which was read Ordered, To lie on tablea until after the question of independence itself was dealt with. That momentous question came up, as had been agree, on Monday, 1 July, and Congress in committee of whole debated it and reported favorably on it; but aat request of colonya, final determination was postponed until 2nd when delegates of twelve Colonies resolve, that these United Colonies are, and, of right, ought To be, Free and Independent States; that they are absolve from all allegiance To British crown, and that all political connexion between them, and state of Great Britain, is, and ought To be, totally dissolvedaathe precise wording of first of Lee resolutions of 7 June. It will be noted that JA as present version of resolution of independence varies markedly from that in Journal, but he was writing without text to copy from. For his part in the debates of 1a2 July as he remembers them, see His Diary and Autobiography description begin Diary and Autobiography of JOHN ADAMS, ed. L. H. Butterfield and others, Cambridge, 1961; 4 vols. Description end, 3: 396a397, and references there. On 1 July, the text of the Declaration as reported by committee on 28 June was referred to the committee of the whole House, and debate on it in the committee of the whole began on the 2nd as soon as the vote of independence pass. This debate continued during the day on which the present letter was written and was resumed on 4, until the committee of whole and Congress were satisfied with the text to be given to the world, whereupon text as revised and adopted was ordered and printeda and distributed to New States and army. Thus, as scarcely needs to be pointed out any longer, though it once present letter and the next one of the same date were written between act of independence itself and adoption of statement design to ajustify it, in Sight of God and man. 4. The Foregoing sentence is not in RC and has been supplied from LbC. Its omission from RC was unquestionably inadvertent, result of mere haste in copying, because it is an essential and revealing element in flow of JA as thought at this point. CFA printed this letter at least five times between 1841 and 1876, but since he used RC exclusively and did not compare it with the text of LbC, this sentence has been omitted in all subsequent printings and quotations of this famous letter.

John Adams to Abigail Adams

All nations ' founding fathers were concerned about how history would judge them, none more so than John Adams. Adams often voices his apprehension that his contribution to American independence would be overshadowed by attention paid to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. Yet the survival of more than 1 100 letters exchanged by John and Abigail Adams, 289 of which are included in this welcome New edition, gives Adams an advantage over his contemporaries in historical record. In widowhood, Martha Washington destroyed almost all her private correspondence with George, and Jefferson likewise burns letters he had exchanged with his wife, Martha. We therefore have no direct evidence of those men's relationships with their wives, whereas correspondence of John and Abigail never intended to be shared outside a small circle of family members and friends has become justly famous. My Dearest Friend begins with a 1762 courtship letter to 17-year-old Abigail Smith from 26-year-old John Adams, and ends with the last surviving letter Abigail write John, shortly before he left Washington in 1801 at the end of his largely unsuccessful four-year presidency. Editors point out that this edition is intended to be read and enjoy, not necessarily study, and so they have refrained from extensive annotations, although they occasionally add introductory paragraphs or brief clarifying comments. Nearly every letter is printed in its entirety, without modernized spelling or punctuation. That practice is especially revealing in Abigail's contributions, because, lacking formal education, she writes with charming idiosyncratic diction. Readers seeking continuous contemporary commentary on the Revolutionary era will not find it here, because Abigail and John obviously did not write to each other when they were together. For long stretches there are few or no letters, most notably from their marriage in 1764 until John became delegate to the First Continental Congress in 1774, and from 1784 to 1788. Further, correspondence from 1789 to 1801 is sporadic, covering only those periods when Abigail was living at home in Quincy without her husband. Yet extended absences the couple endure while John serves new nation in Congress or diplomatic corps works to our benefit today, and 170 pages filled with more sporadic exchanges written after the late 1780s, while John serves as vice president and president, providing valuable insights into the early days of partisan politics. From Johns salutation in first letter to Miss Adorable to the epilogue and his final signature in a letter to his son John Quincy about Abigails death, your age and afflict Father Adamse correspondence gives modern Americans an extraordinarily personal view of our countrys founding. Intermingle with comments on great events of the Battle of Bunker Hill, vote for independence, inauguration of Washington as president are discussions of daily life, stories of neighbors and relatives, complaints about high cost of living and laments over such family tragedies as stillborn daughter and deaths of parents. Their courtship letters are especially delightful.
