    Description

    John Quincy Adams Document Signed as President "J. Q. Adams". One page, 13" x 17", partly printed, on vellum, Washington, June 18, 1825. A land grant "...in consideration of Military Service performed by Thomas Payne a captain for three years to the United States in the Virginia Line on Continental Establishment...a certain Tract of Land containing One Thousand acres situate between the Little Miami and Sciota rivers, northwest of the river Ohio..." These tracts of land were issued to reward past military service and Virginia gave the more generous bounties; a special Virginia Military District was reserved north of the Ohio to fulfill these grants. The document is in fine condition, a bit of light soiling, but with a dark and bold Adams signature and an intact wafer seal. It is matted and framed to an overall size of 17" x 21". Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
