Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $4,853.75 (includes buyer's premium)


Rare manuscript DS, signed “J. Adams,” one page, 7.5 x 3, January 22, 1825. Receipt of a pay order issued by presidential nominee John Quincy Adams to his father, in full: "Received of George Washington Adams-Agent for John Quincy Adams two hundred and fifty dollars for the quarter ending on the 1st instant." Signed boldly at the conclusion by John Adams. The document has been professionally inlaid into an 8.5 x 10.5 sheet. In fine condition. Items signed by Adams bearing an association between himself and his eldest son remain exceedingly scarce, with this example dating to just 18 days before John Quincy was elected as the sixth president of the United States. A great opportunity to own a unique piece of Adams presidential history, one which solemnly represents the care and devotion shown by a son towards his aging father.
