Called Adams "actually insane."
Said the President "had his passions" that were derived from a "half-frantic mind."
Told Congress that Adams "is always an honest man, often a wise one, but sometimes and in some things [he is] absolutely out of his senses."
Publicly denounced Adams in 1800, claiming that Adams had "certain fixed points of character [that] deprive him of self command and produce very outrageous behaviour."
Quoted rumors circulating in the capital in 1799 that Adams was prone to lose control and given to "dashing and trampling his wig on the floor."

a p.11Comment: Devotes one chapter to each President, through Clinton. Written for the layperson, well-referenced, with areas of speculation clearly identified, Dr. Zebra depends heavily on this book. Dr. Bumgarner survived the Bataan Death March and has written an unforgettable book casting a physician's eye on that experience.
