These two handwritten letters from John Quincy Adams are part of the William Treadway autograph collection at the Kansas State Historical Society. The two letters are dated 1823 and 1834 and relate to the granting of requests from some of his constituents. The letter dated July 7, 1823 (not in Adams' handwriting, possibly written by a secretary, but signed by Adams) requests U.S. Marshal Ebenezer K. Denton of Rhode Island to release the smuggler Daniel Easterbrook from prison. The letter dated June 17, 1834, in Adams' handwriting, is a cover letter for a pension certificate for the widow of Joshua Turner which he is sending to Anthony Collamore of Pembroke, Massachusetts.

Date: 1823-1834
