Adams Family Correspondence, volume 6

John Quincy Adams to William Cranch

Mary Smith Cranch to Abigail Adams

7.

Both Mary Cranch and Cotton Tufts were informed of AA2's dismissal of Royall Tyler in letters from AA (15 Aug., and 18 Aug., both above) carried by Capt. Lyde, who arrived in Boston on 20 October. The news evidently reached Shaw after her return from Boston, on the same day, although AA's letter to her of ca. 15 Aug. , above, also carried by Lyde, does not mention the subject.
