3-19-1776 Some people thought John Adams wrote Common Sense. He didn’t but analyzes Common Sense at Abigail’s request.

“You ask, what is thought of Common Sense [in the Continental Congress]. Sensible men think there are some whims, some sophisms, some artful addresses to superstitious notions, some keen attempts upon the passions in this pamphlet. But all agree there is a great deal of good sense, delivered in a clear, simple, concise and nervous [courageous] style. His [whoever the author is] sentiments of the abilities of America, and of the difficulty of a reconciliation with Great Britain are generally approved.” revolution240.com http://ow.ly/i/elv2I
