From Benjamin Rush

Lancaster, 8 February 1778. RC (Adams Papers); printed: Benjamin Rush, Letters, 1:199–200. Detailing some of his charges against Dr. Shippen, Rush complained that his alleged personal resentment was the congress' excuse for not removing the director general of hospitals; therefore, “to restore harmony,” Rush felt compelled to resign.
