John Adams

A quote from John Adams

Posterity! You will never know, how much it cost the present Generation, to preserve your Freedom! I hope you will make a good Use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven, that I ever took half the Pains to preserve it.

— Letter to Abigail. [Saturday Evening, April 26th, 1777]
