636. John Quincy Adams Diary
Newburyport, 21 January 1788 (excerpt)1

… The accounts from Boston this evening are disagreeable. The opposite parties in the convention grow warm and irritable; Mr. Dana and Mr. Gerry it is said have come to an open and public rupture.—Mr. B. Lincoln, the general’s son, and Dr. Adams, son to the president of the Senate, died last week.
