Adams John
John Adams Four Language Ship's Papers Signed as President During the French-American Naval Quasi-War

John Adams four language ship's papers boldly signed as President, November 14, 1798, 19.5" x 15.75", one page with two red wax-based paper seals intact. Uneven right edge, a few chips to margin and archival repair to verso. Overall in very good to near fine condition given age.

Signed during the Quasi-War fought almost entirely at sea between France and the United States. Adams empowers the schooner Skjoldebrand to navigate international waters with this document, countersigned by Secretary of State Timothy Pickering. Fought from July 1798 to September 1800, the unofficial naval war between the United States and France, deemed the "Quasi-War" was fought, with each country seizing merchant ships of the other, such as this vessel commanded by William Penrose.

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
