"Abigail Adams, wife of the second US president, penned one last letter before sailing home to Braintree in 1788 after several years in Europe. Historians never knew the letter was written, but earlier this year it was found in the family papers of a Boston lawyer. Much of what is known about the Adamses has been gleaned from thousands of letters Abigail and John Adams wrote to each other. In the newly discovered letter, Abigail Adams shares personal news and her thoughts on politics on the eve of returning from her husband’s ambassadorship in London." (06/15/11)
