Adams receives five copies of Pennsylvania’s new laws, including “one copy for the President of the United States”

LS signed “John Quincy Adams,” one page, 8 x 10, October 25, 1821. Letter to Andrew Gregg, secretary of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. In part: “I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your…fine copies of the Laws of the last Session of the Legislature of Pennsylvania,—one copy for the President of the United States, one for each House of Congress, one for the Library of Congress, and the remaining one for this Department.” In fine condition, with intersecting folds. At this time, Adams was serving as secretary of state in the cabinet of President James Monroe, later succeeding him as president. Items signed by Adams in full are rather scarce, as he usually opted to pen just his middle initial, and this is an exceptionally clean, boldly signed example featuring desirable content with its mentions of the president, Houses of Congress, Library of Congress, and State Department. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
