Extract from John Adams to Arthur Lee
|Auteuil Jan. 31. 1785|
My new Partner, is an old Friend and Co-adjutor, whose Character I Studied, nine or ten Years ago, and which I do not perceive to be altered. The Same industry, Integrity, and Talents remain without diminution. I am very happy in him but whether We Shall be able to accomplish any Thing here, I know not, any Thing I mean which may make it worth while to keep Us together.
