Press)Some published attacks on Adams:• repulsive pedant• old, guerelous {sic}, bald, blind, and crippled• gross hypocrite• in his private life, one of the most egregious fools upon the continent• that strange compound of ignorance and ferocity, of deceit and weakness• a hideous hermaphroditical character which has neither the force and firmness of aman, nor the gentleness and sensibility of a woman• the reign of Mr. Adams has hitherto been one continued tempest of malignant passions• a wretch that has neither the science of a magistrate, the politeness of a courtier, northe courage of a manPayback: Jefferson & Sally Hemings

    • Abigail: I ruminate upon France as I lie awake many hours before light. My present thought is that their virtuous army will give them a government in spite of all their conventions but of what nature it will be, it is hard to say.John: Send more … there is moregood thoughts, fine strokes, and Abigail: What a jumble are my letters –mother wit in them than I hear [in the politics, domestic concerns, farmingSenate] in a whole week. anecdotes – pray light your cigars with them. John: I want to sit and converse with you about our debates [in the Senate] every evening. I sit here alone and brood over political probabilities and conjectures.
    • I have nothing more to offer than what General Washington would have had tooffer, had he been taken by the British and put to trial. I have adventured my life inendeavouring to obtain the liberty of my countrymen, and am a willing sacrifice intheir cause. (convicted rebel) a wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuit of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned.

(Eaton’sdiary) It is thus the present administration evinces its patriotism, and its energy; not by vain vaunting of prowess; but by actions, which will show the world that while the wish of the American nation is peace, she will not hesitate for a moment to make that power feel the vengeance of her arms, that dares, in violation of justice, to invade her rights. (Jefferson)
