102. ADAMS (Samuel), Services of.—

I always considered him as more than any
other member [in Congress] the fountain of
our important measures. And although he
was neither an eloquent nor easy speaker,
whatever he said was sound, and commanded
the profound attention of the House. In the
discussions on the floor of Congress he reposed
himself on our main pillar in debate,
Mr. John Adams. These two gentlemen were
verily a host in our councils.—
To Dr. Benjamin Waterhouse. Ford ed., x, 124.
(M. 1819)
