* President John Adams letter
* Refuting George Washington's death
Page 2 has a letter to the New York legislature signed in type by the President: John Adams.
Following it is a note which begins: "Some if the infernals who infest the United States have reported...the death of our beloved Fabius-Maximus, of Mount Vernon. The tale is false. Washington yet lives--and the God of all goodness still continues to bless him with health..." with more. He would live for less than 11 months.
Four good condition.
