For AA's purchase of land in Vermont see vol. 4:index, under “Vermont.” On 17 June, in a letter to James Warren, JA had given one reason for disliking this purchase: “God Willing, I will not go to Vermont. I must be within the scent of the sea” (RC [MB]; LbC [Adams Papers], printed in JA, Works , 9:513).
