On Abigail Adams
In the Worcester Telegram, columnist Albert Southwick discusses Woody Holton's new biography, Abigail Adams, and the Adams family papers: "We can be thankful that the Adams tribe was so addicted to writing. Letters, diaries, pamphlets, commentaries and books poured from their quill pens. There are more than 2,000 letters between John and Abigail alone. They discussed national and international events, along with the mundane details of everyday life. Theirs was one of the great love stories of American history."
