Desirable free franked address panel, 5.25 x 3.5, dated and addressed in another hand, "Quincy MA, May 25th, Free, Mathew Carey Esq're, Philadelphia," and boldly franked on the left side by the elderly Adams, "J.

Carey was an Irish-born American publisher and economist who lived and worked in Philadelphia, and is best remembered for his important magazine The American Museum, which counted the likes of George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, James Madison, and Thomas Jefferson among its subscribers.
