    Description

    John Quincy Adams Autograph Letter Signed to War of 1812 Hero Arthur P. Hayne Good association ALS "John Quincy Adams", one page, 8" x 10", Washington, Nov. 19, 1847. He thanks Hayne for "your sketch of your life and military services which I have read with great interest and shall preserve as a precious memorial of the Patriotism of past but not to be forgotten days." Hayne had served during the War of 1812 as a first lieutenant, major, and inspector general. His gallantry at the Battle of New Orleans earned him the rank of brevet lieutenant colonel. The letter has the usual mail folds, and uneven toning, somewhat darker at top fold and left margin. Ink has faded a bit but remains very legible; overall condition is good.
