Further, in assessing his life, Adams was preoccupied by his desire for justice from posterity and his fear that posterity would deny him the enduring fame granted to Washington, Franklin, and Jefferson. These emotions drove him to exaggerate his contributions’ merit and significance and the ways that contemporaries assessed him. At the same time, he often mocked himself, as when he noted to Benjamin Rush on July 23, 1806, that Washington, Franklin, and Jefferson had a great gift that he lacked – the gift of silence (Schutz and Adair, 1966: 59–61).

Ferling emphasized John Adams’s inner life and psychology but sought with considerable success to strike a balance between Adams’s public and private lives. Ferling followed up his valuable study with a bibliography of Adams (1994b). Joseph J. Ellis of Mount Holyoke College published Passionate Sage: The Character and Legacy of John Adams (1993) a year after Ferling’s biography. Perhaps Ellis’s best book, Passionate Sage examines Adams’s life along the lines of Peter Shaw’s character study. Again, it is not a full biography, nor does it plumb the depths of Adams’s political and constitutional thought, though it effectively illuminates Adams in his later years.
