    Abigail Adams Autograph Letter Twice Signed "A A." One page, 7.25" x 5.75", n.p., n.d. Addressed to her daughter-in-law, the wife of her son, Thomas B. Adams, inviting her to dinner, in part: "If you had been alone I should have requested you to dine with me to day, but it looked queer to invite a stranger to an every day dinner. But if you will accept what we have and bring miss white with you, I will send the chaise by one oclock for you." A second signature appears on the verso where the letter is addressed to "Mrs[?> Adams."

    Condition: Smoothed folds. Slight chipping along the upper edge. Scattered spots of foxing and light staining.
