    Excerpt from Letters of John Quincy Adams to Alexander Hamilton Everett, 1811 1837

    Your project of occupying your leisure by a. Historical sketch of the Country where you reside, I have no doubt will prove useful to yourself and to others. The whole interest of the Dutch history is concentrated in the Period of its existence as a Republic; which began at the sepa ration of the Country from the dominion of Spain, and ended by the invasion of the French in 1794. There is now again an Independent Government - but it commences as a Monarchy, without any distinctive Characteristic. The Republic is 110 more; and the Nation is no longer the same.

    Among your occupations I would recommend to you that of making yourself completely master of the French language - to write it, as you do your own. It is the diplomatic language of the whole European Continent, and I wish you to possess it so as never to depend upon a translator. This is the only Country in Europe, where the French is of no use to a foreign legation.

    Should I return the ensuing Spring to the United States, as is highly probable, it will be solely with the view of attending to my private con cerns; to see once more my aged Parents, and to devote my time to the education of my Children. I shall have no objects of a public Nature whatsoever; and to be candid, the conclusive inducement to return will be the want of means to remain where I am.
