Abigail Adams 1811 Autograph Letter Signed — Discussing the Declining Health of Her Sister, Mary Cranch — “…I fear to flatter myself with the prospect of her recovery…”

Scarce Abigail Adams autograph letter signed, dated 31 July 1811 from Quincy, Massachusetts. The former First Lady pens an intimate letter to an unknown friend on the declining state of her sister’s health and seeking help in securing a position at sea for a friend’s son. Letter reads in part: “…You expressed a wish my dear friend when I left your hospitable mansion to hear from me and to learn how my dear sister is. I found her not worse than when I left her, but her disorder is of such a nature and her constitution so worn down by her long illness that I fear to flatter myself with the prospect of her recovery. You know, for you have experienced the hopes and fears which agitate the bosom when a beloved friends life hangs as if were upon a spiders thread. To our heavenly Father I commit her and pray for submission to his will…” Signed clearly “Abigail Adams”. Letter measures 7″ x 9.75″ on two pages, front and verso, with expected toning and folds, and with slight showthrough of handwriting. Very good condition. Sold for $4,933.
