HIS EXCELLENCY JNO. ADAMS TO BENJ. FRANKLIN RESPECTING E. BRIDGEN.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Grosvesnor Square, Westminister,
February 20th, 1786.

Sir:

At the request of Mr. Bridgen I have the honor to enclose to you his letter to the Governor of North Carolina and his letter to me of the 14th Instant.

As Mr. Bridgen desires some Certificates from me, I am happy to say that from his Universal Reputation and from all I have ever known of him, he has uniformly been an advocate for America and the friend of her principles and Cause. As your Excellency has a longer and More particular Acquaintance with him, I dare say your Certificate will be more ample in his favor.

With great respect I have the honor to be,
Your most obedient and humble Servt.,
JOHN ADAMS.
