Ultra-rare handwritten letter featuring a full-name autograph from former President John Quincy Adams! Measuring 6.5 x 8.25 & dated November 4, 1802 all in Adam's hand. Written from Boston, a letter to law partners James Bridge and Keuel Williams of Augusta, Maine, in part: "I duly received your favour, requesting my attendance to the action of W. Whitewell vs Dudley Doe—And enclosing the summons—the action stands continued by consent to our January term. It is the wish of the plf's counsels that…trial may be final at the Court of Common Pleas may…; and if the defence suggested in your letter can be there substantiated, I presume the plf will not appeal. You will please to forward me the promised evidence, or give me notice, what you wish to have done with the cause, in seasonable time for January term. I am with great regard & esteem gentlemen your friend & very humble serv't." In very good to fine condition, with several areas of seal-related paper loss affecting a few words of text. It's worth noting this is one of the earliest handwritten letters we have handled from the POTUS. Iconic Auctions guarantees this item to pass authentication by Beckett Authentication Services (BAS).
