1. JA 's letter to Rush of 8 Feb. 1778, with a postscript by AA saying she stood “in need of [Rush's] prescriptions of Condolance,” is now in MB; LbC (Adams Papers) is printed in JA, Works , 9:472–473, without the postscript. Rush's statement that he had received this letter on “the 10th. of this instant” (i.e. August), found also in LbC , makes the date he attached to LbC altogether unaccountable.
