63. ADAMS (John), Character.—[further continued]

The President's title, as
proposed by the Senate, was the most superlatively
ridiculous thing I ever heard of. It
is a proof the more of the justice of the
character given by Dr. Franklin of my friend.
Always an honest man, often a great one,
but sometimes absolutely mad.—
To James Madison. Ford ed., v, 104.
(P. July. 1789)
