James Monroe And John Quincy Adams - Document Signed As President; Autograph, Ds

James Monroe - Document Signed as President with John Quincy Adams Signing as Secretary of State
An impressive pairing of two of our earliest Presidents!

Description

Partly-printed Document Signed (DS), signed “James Monroe” as President and “John Quincy Adams” as Secretary of State, one page on vellum, 11’’ x 15’’, January 4, 1823. Scalloped-top ship’s pass issued to the “Ship Virginia of New York Charles Reeve master or commander of the burthen of two hundred thirty five & 84/95 tons or thereabouts mounted with no guns navigated with twelve men To Pass with her Company Passengers Goods and Merchandize without any hinderance seisure or molestation the said Ship appearing by good testimony to belong to one or more of the Citizens of the United States and to him or them only.” In Very Good condition, with intersecting folds, one through a single letter of Monroe’s signature, and scattered toning, soiling, and wrinkling. Despite these flaws, the print on the document is dark and legible, and both Monroe’s and Madison’s signatures have been excellently preserved. The white seal is toned, but intact. James Monroe was born in Westmoreland County, Virginia, and fought in the American Revolutionary War. After studying law under Thomas Jefferson from 1780 to 1783, he served as a delegate in the Continental Congress. He took an active part in the new government, and in 1790 he was elected to the Senate of the first United States Congress, where he joined the Jeffersonians. He gained experience as an executive as the Governor of Virginia and rose to national prominence as a diplomat in France, when he helped negotiate the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. During the War of 1812, Monroe held the critical roles of Secretary of State and the Secretary of War under President James Madison. John Quincy Adams (July 11, 1767 - February 23, 1848) was the sixth President of the United States (1825-1829). He served as American diplomat, Senator, and Congressional representative. He was a member of the Federalist, Democratic-Republican, National Republican, and later Anti-Masonic and Whig parties. Adams was the son of former President John Adams and Abigail Adams. As a diplomat, Adams played an important role in negotiating many international treaties, most notably the Treaty of Ghent, which ended the War of 1812. As Secretary of State, he negotiated with the United Kingdom over America's northern border with Canada, negotiated with Spain the annexation of Florida, and authored the Monroe Doctrine. Historians agree he was one of the greatest diplomats and secretaries of state in American history.
