InВ 1780В AbigailВ AdamsВ wroteВ aВ letterВ toВ herВ sonВ JohnВ QuincyВ Adams, В withinВ sheВ includesВ manyВ differentВ aspectsВ ofВ motherlyВ advice. В TheВ futureВ presidentВ wasВ travelingВ overseasВ withВ hisВ fatherВ JohnВ AdamsВ aВ diplomatВ atВ theВ time. В SheВ statesВ herВ wishesВ forВ herВ sonВ andВ howВ sheВ thinksВ heВ shouldВ holdВ himselfВ asВ aВ gentleman. В SheВ exercisesВ theВ useВ ofВ encouragingВ flattery, В subtleВ threat, В Logos, В Pathos, В andВ andВ mostВ importantlyВ guilt. В В WhileВ openingВ theВ essayВ AdamsВ doesВ aВ goodВ jobВ ofВ remindingВ В herВ sonВ ofВ theВ occasionsВ inВ theВ pastВ thatВ heВ hasВ takenВ herВ adviceВ andВ itВ hasВ playedВ outВ inВ hisВ favor. В ThisВ strategyВ isВ usedВ byВ AdamsВ toВ remindВ herВ sonВ ofВ herВ knowledgeВ andВ whyВ heВ shouldВ listenВ toВ her. В " IfВ IВ hadВ thoughtВ youВ capableВ ofВ judgingВ whatВ wasВ mostВ forВ yourВ ownВ benefit, В IВ shouldВ notВ haveВ urgedВ you. ” ByВ openingВ herВ letterВ withВ thisВ reminder, В AdamsВ isВ usingВ Logos, В andВ appealingВ toВ JohnВ Quincy'sВ logicalВ orВ rationalВ thinking. В SheВ isВ alsoВ openingВ hisВ mindВ toВ allВ theВ otherВ adviceВ thatВ isВ yetВ toВ comeВ inВ herВ letter. В В В

Adam'sВ alsoВ employsВ aВ veryВ powerfulВ threatВ inВ herВ letter. В InВ theВ secondВ paragraphВ

Adam'sВ veryВ clearlyВ statesВ theВ importanceВ ofВ JohnВ QuincyВ notВ messingВ upВ hisВ opportunities. В " You, В however, В readilyВ submittedВ toВ myВ advice, В and, В IВ hope, В willВ neverВ haveВ occasionВ yourself, В norВ giveВ meВ reason, В toВ lamentВ it. ” HereВ Adam'sВ isВ statingВ thatВ sheВ gaveВ himВ goodВ adviceВ andВ hopesВ heВ doesn'tВ makeВ herВ regretВ itВ orВ disappointВ her. В ThisВ statementВ alsoВ appealsВ toВ JohnВ Quincy'sВ emotionalВ side, В orВ Pathos. В EveryoneВ seeksВ theirВ mothersВ approvalВ andВ itВ isВ emotionalВ whenВ youВ letВ yourВ motherВ down. В Adam'sВ remindingВ JohnВ QuincyВ ofВ thisВ willВ helpВ himВ makeВ decisionsВ thatВ wouldВ makeВ herВ proudВ andВ inВ thisВ case, В itВ wouldВ beВ followingВ herВ advice. В В InВ herВ letterВ Adam'sВ isВ sureВ toВ giveВ JohnВ QuincyВ aВ goodВ amountВ ofВ praise. В SheВ statesВ theВ " natureВ wasn'tВ deficient” andВ " YouВ areВ favoredВ withВ superiorВ advantagesВ underВ theВ...
