About This Item

The greatest of all Federalists, the noted attorney who organized the Federal Party, was a Massachusetts statesman and Congressman (1789-97), famed for his 1796 speech defending Jay's Treaty; he declined the presidency of Harvard University in 1806 due to failing health. ADS, 1p, 7¼" X 2 3/4", Dedham, MA, 9 October 1794. Very good. Faintly age toned, with tiny tape stain at three corners (not affecting text) and couple of small expert archival mends on verso. "Recd of Fisher Ames fine Shills / for serving a writ, being a Coroner of Suffolk, / Fisher vs Inhabts of Dedham, to July Court 17[?]4 / Dedham Oct 9, 1794" boldly penned in brown ink and signed by the recipient, Samuel Holbrook, at the close. Holbrook (1729-94) was a Dedham local. Docket on verso. Nice, if curious anbd cryptic, example.
