“The long Letter” from JA was that of 2 June to Huntington commenting on Germain's speech of 6 5 May in Parliament (PCC, No. 84, II, printed in Wharton, ed., Dipl. Corr. Amer. Rev. , 3:752–758; LbC , Adams Papers, printed in JA, Works , 7:180–186). According to Edmund Jenings, it had already been published in the London General Advertiser and Morning Intelligencer; see Jenings to JA , 9 July, JA , Papers of John Adams, 9:504, 506. It appeared in the Pennsylvania Packet, 19 Dec., and AA arranged to have it reprinted in the Boston papers; see her letter to Nathaniel Willis?, ante 4 Jan. 1781, below. Which “Advertizer” this was is not certain, but it was evidently a Philadelphia newspaper. “The long Letter” from JA was that of 2 June to Huntington commenting on Germain's speech of 6 5 May in Parliament (PCC, No. 84, II, printed in Wharton, ed., Dipl.
