Papers of John Adams, Volumes 3 and 4: May 1775 - August 1776by John Adams
As the American colonies grew more restive, and a break with the mother country ceased to be unthinkable, John Adams was forced to spend less and less time with his beloved family. Although burdened by ever expanding responsibilities in the Second Continental Congress, he found time for an amazing amount of correspondence.
What more than rewards the reading of these volumes...are the splashes of wit, the funny episodes, the hints of intrigue, the eyewitness accounts of historic moments, and, above all, the reminder of what a passionate participant in life John Adams was.
