ADAMS, JOHN QUINCY, President. Superb letter as president to Sec. of Treasury Richard Rush explaining why he is unwilling to remind a penalty. In part “The case appears to me upon his own showing to be one of high aggravation.” He goes on interestingly with “Mr. Canning’s decease has buried in my bosom all the feelings of resentment which his conduct towards us had kindled. I hope that wiser and better men will take his place. That if not, we must contend with them, as we have done with him, and (here he quotes what his father John Adams had written to Jefferson) “trust the Ruler with his skies.” With a reprint of an article in Manuscripts magazine that further explains the letter.
