Description  

Free franked address panel, 5 x 3.5, addressed in another hand to his grandson Thomas Boylston Adams, Jr., “Cadet Thomas B. Adams, West Point Academy, New York,” and franked to the left of the address in his elderly hand, “J. Adams.” A notation in another hand above the address reads, “Free, Quincy Mass., February 20.” Notations at the top, presumably in Thomas B. Adams’s hand, read: “Rec’d Saturday 25th February, 1826, Ans’d 4th March.” A section of the original letter remains on the reverse, signed by an “A. Adams,” possibly Thomas Boylston Adams, Jr.’s mother Ann Harrod Adams. In fine condition, with show-through from writing to reverse and trimmed edges. Thomas Boylston Adams, Jr., died of fever at his post in Fort Dade, Florida, during the Second Seminole War. John Adams was ninety years old at the time he signed this free frank and would pass away just five months later on July 4. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
