I’m reading John Adam’s annotated copy of Mary Wollstonecraft’s  Historical and Moral View of the French Revolution, ya know, for like, fun. And it’s hilarious.  I swear he’s almost a caricature of himself. It’s TOO John Adams™  
Like this over-dramatic nonsense  
Tumblr media
At first, it’s clear he can’t get over the fact that a chick is writing about POLITICS
Tumblr media
He loves to write little sarcastic comments when the language and/or sentiments are Too Optimistic for him
Tumblr media
also when Wollstonecraft sly-digs the american revolution
Tumblr media
He didn’t think Marie Antoinette was All That (later he says “her beauty was chiefly the fiction of flattery”)
Tumblr media
Is a total prude even in his most private thoughts #repressed
Tumblr media
But every once in a while shows genuine appreciation for good writing

We must say we prefer homemade Halloween costumes. Pat Nixon once dressed Tricia and Julie as the sweetest little fairy princesses. We have one of the dresses (minus the tulle overlay) carefully stored in our museum collection. (Image: A10-24.8.22.3)
