JOURNAL OF THE EARLY REPUBLIC (Summer 2005) Papers of John Adams. Volume 12: October 1781April 1782. Edited by Gregg L. Lint, Richard Alan Ryerson, Anne Decker Cecere, C. James Taylor, Jennifer Shea, Celeste Walker, Margaret A. Hogan. (Cambridge, MA: Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 2004. Pp. 533. Illustrations. Cloth, $85.00.) Reading John Adams's writing in this twelfth volume of the Papers of John Adams has been both pleasurable and instructive. Adams's abilities have long been recognized: his intelligence, his mental energy, his broad knowledge, his capacity for work. He had less attractive traits as well: vanity, hypersensitivity to slight, and, in his later years, an obsession with reputation. In the seven months between October 1781 and April 1782, which this volume covers, Adams and his correspondents produced enough writing to fill 500 pages of printed text. Throughout, Adams's unique qualities of personality and character that make him such a notable and interesting person are vividly displayed. The papers published in volume 12 continue the story of Adams's diplomatic assignment in the Netherlands begun in volumes 10 and 11. The items cover a variety of subjects and include most importantly Adams's correspondence with Congress and Secretary for Foreign
