DescriptionSamuel Francis Smith Autograph Quote Signed "S. F. Smith." One page, 4" x 6.25", "written 1832". The author of My Country, 'Tis of Thee, which he titled America, writes in his own hand the first stanza from the song:
"My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, Of thee I sing, Land where my fathers died, Land of the pilgrim's pride, From every mountain side Let freedom ring."
Smith's signature and "written 1832" appear below the stanza. Some modest toning to the paper, else this example is bright, legible, boldly written and in fine condition.
