8. Charles Storer was a distant relation of AA 's and friend of the Adams' circle in Massachusetts. He sailed for Göteborg in the summer of 1781 and soon after joined JA and John Thaxter in the Netherlands. There he studied French and, as this letter indicates, assisted Thaxter as JA 's private secretary (vol. 4:124, note 1, 198, 364). This is the first extant letter in Storer's extensive correspondence with various members of the Adams family.
