Feb. 11: Great Changes

On February 11, 1776, John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail (Smith) Adams, "In such great Changes and Commotions, Individuals are but Atoms. It is scarcly worth while to consider what the Consequences will be to Us. What will be the Effects upon present and future Millions, and Millions of Millions, is a Question very interesting to Benevolence natural and Christian. God grant they may and I firmly believe they will be happy."
