Description


ALS signed “Thos. Fitzsimons,” three pages on two adjoining sheets, 7.25 x 8.75, March 7, 1790. Penned in his difficult-to-decipher hand, a letter to founding father and Declaration of Independence signer Benjamin Rush, in part: "I am uneasy at being so long without a letter from you least any thing in my correspondence as indecent should be the occasion of it, if it has I have been quietly without intentionā€¦I suppose the Constitution will be agreed to in August nearly as published in which case your next election will beā€¦important." In very good to fine condition, with staining to the hinge, two tears to the left edge, and seal-related paper loss to the integral address leaf affecting some of the body of the letter. From the Collection of Dr. Lawrence E. Miller.
