“I have no doubt but that my dearest Friend is anxious to know how his Portia does, and his little flock of children under the opperation of a disease once so formidable. I have the pleasure to tell him that they are all comfortable tho some of them of complaining…” -- Abigail Adams to John Adams, July 21 1776

More events are being planned at the Abigail Adams Birthplace.
