Manuscript DS, signed “S Adams Presid,” one page, 7 x 7, February 22, 1785. A document issued by the Massachusetts State Senate. In part: “The Committee of both Houses appointed to prepare Instructions to the Delegates of this Commonwealth in Congress have attended that Service—and take leave to request the Resolves accompanying.” Adams adds his endorsement at the conclusion, “Read & accepted with Amendment at A on the annexed paper.” A manuscript addition below confirms that the Massachusetts House of Representatives also read and concurred with the resolves, but added an amendment. Attractively double-matted and framed with a portrait of the patriot to an overall size of 18.5 x 13.75. In very good condition, with professionally repaired partial separations to intersecting folds, scattered toning, and fading to portions of the writing and signature (not affecting legibility). During this period Adams was a prominent figure in public life, serving as president of the Massachusetts Senate. This unique version of his signature, in which he adds his presidential designation, is quite uncommon. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
