This foot note contained in document DQA01d776
1. 14 May (Adams Papers
), which contained documents and the account from the Leyden Gazette,
discussed below, but no mention of “letters for America,” and possibly, though not likely, his letter of 18 May (Adams Papers
). Probably the latter never reached JQA before he sailed on 21 May.
