Extract from John Adams to Thomas Jefferson
|Quincy Montezillo July 12th 1822|
Your number of 1267. letters in a year, does not surprise me; I have no list of mine, and I could not make one without a weeks research. and I do not believe I ever received one quarter part of your number. And I very much doubt whether I received in the same year one twelfth part; There are reasons enough for the difference.
