Letter : to Christopher Gadsden, Charleston, S.C., 1801 April 16.

Letter from Adams at Stony Field begins by expressing friendly sentiments. Adams has read Gadsden's publication and values his friendship. He inveighs against Jacobinism and "foreigners," recommends J. Rutledge's plan concerning admission into citizenship of the latter and suggests caution. Refers to Gen. Pinckney's conduct in the last election. Adams will now occupy himself with his interests in agriculture and letters, and he wishes to return to the bar to forget public life as so much as happened to "mortify the vanity of man." He wishes prosperity to Jefferson's administration but feels it is too strongly infected with party spirit.
