John Quincy Adams & Tobacco

November 21, 1845

A letter from Adams, Aug 19, in Quincy commending a proposed publication of a book on Tobacco.   Adams recounts his previous addiction to tobacco, and that he has been free from that addiction for more than thirty years; he no longer feels its “stimulating power”.  He urges all to try but for three months the experiment which he made.  He would “turn every acre of tobacco into a wheat field.”
