A Quote by John Adams on bigotry, cruelty, danger, darkness, death, history, and wishes

My history of the Jesuits is not elegantly written, but is supported by unquestionable authorities, is very particular and very horrible. Their restoration is indeed "a step toward darkness," cruelty, perfidy, despotism, death and I wish we were out of danger of bigotry and Jesuitism.

John Adams (1735 - 1826)
