Letters from King to Dr. Daniel Kilham of Newburyport, Mass. The letters refer to the personal affairs of the two men and to a large extent to the matters of contemporary diplomacy and politics. Among the subjects touched upon are the peace treaty with England, the Barbary powers, Spanish remonstrance against U.S. navigation of the Mississippi, and Mr. Adams' reception at the British court. Four of the letters bear manuscript copies of Kilham's reply.
