John Quincy Adams, and tobacco

A letter from Adams, August  19, in Quincy, commends a proposed publication of a book on Tobacco.  He recounts his previous addiction to tobacco, from which addiction he has been free for more than thirty years.  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”.  (Liberator, Nov. 21, 1845)
