John Adams letter

 File — Folder: 1
Identifier: MSS SC 733
Scope and Contents

Photocopy of a handwritten and signed letter. Adams states that a Mr. Young "from Mendon" has been hired to do some work for him.

The "Mr. Young" may have been Brigham Young (1801-1877), second president of the Mormon Church. The date of the item is also uncertain.

Dates: approximately 1830
