The next book on my list (okay, there are two or three I’m about to start, but that is beside the point) is Adams vs. Jefferson: The Tumultuous Election of 1800. While reading David McCullough’s description of the correspondence between Adams and Jefferson in John Adams , I got to thinking about how letter writing is a lost art. An old friend of mine—who pretty much worships Jefferson—and I are going to read Adams vs. Jefferson and discuss it by snail mail. As far as I know, this book is outside of the interest of the people who look at PSR&M, but thought I’d tell you in case you wanted to join the fun.
