#280 - John Randolph Estimate: $200+

Planter and politician from Virginia (1773-1833) who served in the House of Representatives and Senate. ALS from John Randolph signed “J. R. of Roanoke,” one page, 5 x 7.75, no date. Letter to his cousin, Maria Coleman, in part: "Accept my best thanks my dear cousin Maria, for your kind note & present—'offended with you'—(what could suggest such an idea) for a pious sermon by a truly pious man, but one whom I doubt pushes his doctrines sometimes beyond Gospel warranty—& who by having been deferred to from his boyhood has I fear become more dogmatical than becomes the true disciple of incarnate Humility. I have a great regard for Mr. M. who can but respect his zeal, his honest intrepid zeal in his vocation?—but I must not run into a homily." In fine condition, with a small stain to the top edge, and light show-through along the left edge from an old mounting strip on the back.
