Letter from John Adams to Abigail Adams, 18 June 1775


This Letter, I presume, will go by the brave and amiable General Washington.

Our Army will have a Group of Officers, equal to any service.

Washington, Ward, Lee,Gates, Gridley, together with all the other ''New England officers, will make a glorious Council of War.

This Congress are all as deep, as the Delegates from the Massachusetts, and the whole Continent as forward as Boston.

We shall have a Redress of Grievances, or an Assumption of all the powers of Government legislative, Executive and judicial, throughout the whole Continent very soon.

Georgia is bestirring itself -- I mean the whole of it. The Parish of St. Johns which is one third of it, was with Us before.

I am &c.
