contact with the whites. Although he was one of the earliest, yet he was one of
the most curious and accurate observers of the customs and peculiarities of the
Aborigines who have attempted to describe them.”— Field.

"Mr. Adair points out various customs of the Indians, having a striking resemblance
to those of the Jews; and the great object of his work appears to be to prove that
the aborigines of America are descended from that race.”— Allen's Bio. Dict.

Defence of the Constitutions of Government of the

3 vols., 8vo, half morocco, gilt top, uncut, by Bradstreet.

"This work is not, as its title states, a defence of the American Constitution, but a warm defence of the Constitution of Great Britain. It is the best anti-democratie treatise that we have seen; for Dr. Adams appears to dread that that is the extreme to which his countrymen will naturally lean, and he has exerted his best endeavors to obviate the evil."- Monthly Review. This writer has not distinguished between republicanism and democracy. The work did much to familiarize the European mind to the novel state of things then taking place in America. It includes the opinions of eminent writers on various republics of the world. See C. F. Adams's Life of John Adams, 1, 430.
