3 ADAMS FAMILY; EDITED BY SARA MARTIN, C. JAMES TAYLOR, NEAL E. MILLIKAN, AMANDA M. NORTON, HOBSON WOODWARD, SARA B. SIKES, GREGG L. LINT, SARA GEORGINI. Adams Family Correspondence, Volume 12 March 1797- April 1798.
Belknap Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London England: 2015. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Volume 12 of Adams Family Correspondence, with 276 documents spanning from March 1797 through April 1798, opens with the inauguration of John Adams as president and closes just after details of the XYZ affair are made public in America. Through private networks of correspondence, the Adamses reveal both their individual concerns for the well-being of the nation and the depth of their public and political engagement with the republic. Abigail's letters to friend and foe demonstrate the important role she played as an unofficial member of the administration. John Quincy and Thomas Boylston's letters from The Hague, Paris, London, and finally Berlin offer keen observations about the political turmoil in France and its consequences, the shifting European landscape as a result of the war, and court life in Berlin following the coronation of Frederick William III. In the midst of crisis, the family's domestic life and personal connections challenged and sustained them. The marriage of John Quincy and Louisa Catherine Johnson in London in July 1797 gave the family cause for celebration, while John's appointment of John Quincy as U.S. minister to Prussia created a minor rift as the scrupulous younger Adams struggled with concerns about nepotism. Visits between the elder Adamses and their children Nabby and Charles in New York provided welcome distractions, even as John and Abigail worried about Nabby's domestic situation. With the characteristic candor and perception expected from the Adamses, this volume again features forthright commentary from one family at the center of it all. Sara Martin is Editor in Chief of the Adams Papers at the Massachusetts Historical Society. C. James Taylor is former Editor in Chief of the Adams Papers at the Massachusetts Historical Society. Neal E. Millikan is Assistant Editor of the Papers of George Washington and former Assistant Editor of the Adams Papers at the Massachusetts Historical Society. Amanda M. Norton (nŽe Amanda A.

The major part of this book is taken up with the life of Jefferson, and, in contrast, his great antagonist, Alexander Hamilton.
