    James Monroe, John Quincy Adams and Associates. This lot contains the following items:

    President James Monroe Ship "Rolla" Document Signed with John Quincy Adams countersigned as Secretary of State. One page, partly printed, 10" x 14", New York, April 3, 1818. Unfortunately this document is in poor condition with paper loss affecting both signatures. A paper conservator could make this a very displayable item though.
