On this first morning of the new year, I yield the floor to Mr. John Adams, who wrote this New Year greeting to his wife Abigail on 1 January 1779:
“I wish you a happy new year and many happy years, and all the blessings of life. Who knows but this year may be more prosperous for our country than any we have seen? For my own part, I have hopes that it will. Great blessings are in store for it, and they may come this year as well as another.”
And, from all of us at “We’ll See!”, may you prosper in peace in 2012.
