~In a letter from James Warren to John Adams~
“After all our study, I don’t know but Mrs. Adam’s Native Genius will Excel us all in Husbandry. She was Engaged when I came, along, and the Farm at Braintree Appeared to be under Excellent Management.”
~In a letter from John Adams to Abigail~
“Gen. Warren writes me, that my Farm never looked better, than when he last saw it, and that Mrs.- was like to outshine all the Farmers.- I wish I could see it.- But I can make Allowances. He knows the Weakness of his Friends Heart and that nothing flaters it more than praises bestowed upon a certain Lady.”
James Warren was the husband to one Abigail's best friends and the two families were very good friends. These letters where written while John was in Boston and Abigail was in Braintree. She went and joined him in Boston soon afterwords.
