MR. ADAMS' LETTER.
a7The following letter (says the Boston Free
Press) from JOHN QUINCY ADAMS, explains
the views of his illustrious father and of himself,
thksubject of Freemasonry. It was written in
ote from our correspondent, who is ro
viewmg r. .heppard's Defence of the Masonic
iatltition—Mr. Sheppard claimed the elder An.
.41,,kie as a patron of the Order; and our correspon
dent took the liberty of addressing Mr. Adams,
asking for information on this point.
QUINCY, 22d August, 1831.
• SlR—The letter from my father to the
Grand Lodge of Massachusetts, which Mr.
Sheppard haS thought proper to introduce
into his address, was a complimentary an
swer.lo a friendly and patriotic address of
the Ginnti Lodge to him. In it he express.
ly states thathe had never been initiated in
the order. He-therefore knew nothing of
their Secrete, their the, nor their Penal
-ticei-----Farless had their ctical operation
been revealed,;Thy the mur er, of William
Morgan. Nor lied the hand of the Avenger

and-probably forever,-by the contumacy of
witnesses sitting justice at defiance in her

Bar—Mr. Gridley, in his own office, exam

professional acquirements; gave him advice
truly paternal, and slictated by the• purest
virtue; and then presented him to the Court,
with a declaration that he had himself ex

that his legal acquirements were very con
siderable, and fully worthy of the admissions
which he solicited.
This kindness of Mr. Gridley was never'
forgotten by my father—l trust it will never

day forth, while Mr. Gridley lived, he was

counsel, and as he was Grand Master of the
Lodge, once asked his, advice, whether it
was worth his while to become a member of
the Society. In the candour of friendship, °
Mr. Gridley answered him—NO—adding
that by aggregation to the society
man might acqiiiiiraliilleartiAcial suppor4
but that he did not need it, and that there .
was nothing in the Masonic Institution wor-
