John Adams, son of the Hon. John Adams, was born in Nova Scotia in 1704. He was a settled minister in Newport in 17:28, and afterwards removed to Philadelphia. The publisher, in his address to the reader, says: “The character of this excellent Person, is too great to be compriz'd within the Limits of a Paper of Intelligence. It deserves to be engraven in Letters of Gold on a Monument of Marble.
But sufficient to perpetuate his Memory to the latest Posterity, are the immortal Writings and Composures of this departed Gentleman ; who, for his Genius, his Learning, and his Piety, ought to be enroll'd in the highest Class, in the Catalogue of Fame.” 3 ADAMS (JOHN QUINCY).
