Description: Adams, John Quincy. Letter Signed, enclosing a copy of his speech on Lafayette. 1/2 page, 4to. Boston, 26 November 1845 [E1,000/1,500] Conformably to your request I enclose here with a Copy of my Oration on the life and character of La Fayette of which I ask your acceptance The Lecture on the War between Great Britain and China, was published surreptitiously and against my consent in a British newspaper immediately after it was delivered, it was thence copied. Adams, still a Congressman three years before his death, enjoyed a fame and respect unlike any contemporary's.
