Business with a Continental Congressman
Description                           Estimate: $3,500+          

ALS, one page, 8 x 13, January 15, 1806. Letter to James Lovell in Boston, who was a member of the Continental Congress and signer of the Articles of Confederation. In part: “It is with real concern that I am obliged…on the subject of the lands in which you took so natural an interest, with the inclosed communication from Mr. Jackson, to which I can add nothing of myself. The result is the more disagreeable as you will find that the measures taken to ascertain the facts, have reduced the remittance to me of 50 Doll’rs to twenty.” Retains the integral address lead addressed in Madison’s hand and franked in the upper right, “Dept. of State, James Madison.” In very good to fine condition, with squares of discoloration along the top, and selective silking on the reverse to areas of paper loss and splits along folds. Accompanied by a letter from Lovell to Madison (apparently a retained copy of his response to this letter). Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
