[dateline] Plym: March 15th 1775
[salute] Dear Sir
With some difficulty I have Obtained the Inclosed.1
Some scruples which you have not resolved, and some fears, and Apprehensions from
Rumors Abroad have Occasioned the delay, and reluctance. The Copy I got last Night.
Have had no time to read it over. You will please to Examine and Correct &c. and do
with it as you think proper, haveing as I dare say you will, a proper regard to prudence
under present Circumstances. It is A long while since I had a line from you. Perhaps
some may have Miscarried. The Bearer waits and I can only Add my regards to Mrs. Adams.
And that I am Yr. Friend &c,
