Excerpt from Brown Alumni Monthly, Vol. 65: December, 1964 John Adams remarked: We might as well expect a change in the solar system as to expect that Massachusetts would give up the established church governed by the State. Later John Adams in his memoirs Vol. II p. 30 sparked up his original sentence a bit, as follows: They might as well turn the heavenly bodies out Of their annual and diurnal courses as to turn the people of Massachusetts at the present day from their Meeting House and Sunday Laws. What he meant to say to Manning was, Not a chance, Jim. Well, 60 years passed, and on April 1, 1834, the ghost of John Adams was April-fooled, or else the sun forgot to rise. For Massachusetts, on that day, separated church and state. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
