When Mary Wollstonecraft's book on recent French political events was published in 1794, John Adams already knew first-hand about revolutions.
He read the book for the first time in 1796, and disagreed with many of Wollstonecraft's ideas. He wrote comments on nearly every page.
"John Adams' favorite form of conversation was an argument. He thought that arguments were the only form of conversation that really forced you into truth..."
-- Historian Joseph Ellis
