37. Oakes Angier, of West Bridgewater, who had been a law clerk to JA; see Adams Family Correspondence, 1:83–84; JA, Legal Papers, 1:lxxxi. AA seems, however, to have been mistaken. No one else mentions Angier as Tyler’s law preceptor after the latter left Dana’s office. Dana himself said that Tyler continued his clerkship with Benjamin Hichborn, a young Boston lawyer (Dana to JA, 23 May 1783, Adams Papers). This is confirmed by an entry in the Suffolk Bar Book (MS, MHi); see MHS, Procs., 1st ser., 19 (1881–1882): 154. On Hichborn see JA, Diary and Autobiography, 2:174–175; 3:318–319.
