Autograph Note (unsigned) / Initialed Signature. Fisher AMES.

Autograph Note (unsigned) / Initialed Signature.

The greatest of all Federalists, the one who organized the Federal Party, was a Massachusetts representative, famed for his 1796 speech defending Jay's Treaty. Unsigned AN with initialed signature tipped on, 1p, 7½" X 3½", n.p., n.d. Very good. Odd fragment, apparently from a legal agreement concerning a house, reading in part: "1st. that you agree in the interpretation I have put on the expression of 'a convenient house' as meaning also convenient outhouses and garden...." An initialed signature has been tipped in at the close of this partial document, which has been tastefully double matted alongside a lovely 5½" X 8" period steel engraved portrait of Ames and engraved brass plaque and framed in a ½" antiqued silver frame (overall dimensions 19" X 12"). Very attractive and scarce. Item #16157
