Papers of John Adams, volume 9

From Mark Lynch

From Samuel Adams

2.

JA's replies to the speeches by Lord George Germain and Gen. Henry Seymour Conway in the House of Commons on 5 May were sent in his letters to Jenings of 28 May (not found, but see Jenings' letter of 2 June, note 1, above) and 30 May (Adams Papers). For the replies themselves, first published in the Mercure de France, see JA's letters of 17 and 28 May to Edmé Jacques Genet (both above). Unfortunately the issues of the London General Advertiser and Morning Intelligencer in which JA's pieces appeared, over the signature “Probus,” have not been found, thus the nature of Jenings' alterations cannot be determined.
