John Quincy Adams letters

John Quincy Adams letters
Date: 1823-1834
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.

Ottawa Indians to President John Quincy Adams

Ottawa Indians to President John Quincy Adams
Creator: Ottawa Indians
Date: February 17, 1829
This letter to President John Quincy Adams was written by seven Ottawa Indians, including two who had completed a surveying trip with missionary Isaac McCoy. These Ottawas, who had been offered lands west of the Mississippi, appeared to be pleased with the new lands in Indian Territory and wished to move there alongside McCoy and another missionary named Johnston Lykins. The letter was written from Fort Wayne, Indiana, but these Ottawas had originally resided in Michigan. The seven Indians who dictated this letter signed their mark to the bottom of the document.
