    Marquis de Lafayette Autograph Letter Signed. One page, 6.5" x 8", in French, Lagrange, March 23 (no year included).

In 1787, Lafayette again would become involved in revolutionary activities, this time in his native country. The letter has been elaborately matted with a 4" x 6.5" etching of Lafayette and the cut address, 3.75" x 2.5", of the recipient, and framed to a size of 31" x 27".
