#306 - Henry Clay Estimate: $300+

Clay letter mentioning Jefferson, John Adams, and John Quincy Adams

ALS signed “H. Clay,” one page, 8 x 10, October 26, 1826. Letter to Dr. Lyons, in part: “I have communicated to the President the wish expressed in your letter… to repossess yourself of a letter addressed in 1786 by Mr. Jefferson to Mr. Adams deceased, in your behalf. He has no recollection of seeing such a letter, but says that he has not yet been able to examine and arrange the immense mass of his father’s papers, which are put in trunks and carefully deposited in Boston. If hereafter he should lay his hands upon the letter in question he will endeavor to recollect to return it." Removably encapsulated in a Mylar sleeve. In very good condition, with light mottled overall staining, more obvious circular stains, and small areas of paper loss along fragile intersecting folds.
