A Sunday in May 1776. John Adams reflect

A Sunday in May 1776. John Adams reflects on what he hears, two months before the Continental Congress declares independence. “I have this morning heard Mr. Duffil [George Duffield] upon the signs of the times. He run a parallel between the case of Israel and that of America, and between the conduct of Pharaoh and that of [King] George,” John Adams writes to Abigail about hearing a sermon in Philadelphia. “He concluded that the course of events, indicated strongly the design of Providence that we should be separated from Great Britain.” http://www.revolution240.com 240 years since 1776 http://ow.ly/i/en0gs
