John Adams, Declaration Signer from MA, Bold Signature & Inscription

Bold ink signature and inscription, “The Hon. John Taylor, Esqr., from his humble servant, the author, John Adams, April 9th, 1814,” on an off ­white 4 x 2 slip, marked “Discourses on D” in another hand. In very good to fine condition, with trimmed edges, a block of toning to the top, and ink blots to edges. Accompanied by an engraved portrait. This was apparently clipped from the flyleaf of a presentation volume of Adams’s 1790 book Discourses on Davila, a work of political philosophy in defense of the US Constitution.
