SPLENDID EARLY 1767 THOMAS JEFFERSON AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED, WRITTEN WHEN HE WAS ONLY 24 YEARS OLD TO HIS COLLEGE FRIEND JOHN PAGE, MENTIONING HIS OWN WIFE AND FAMILY, HIS PLANS TO PRACTICE IN THE GENERAL COURT, HIS CLOSE FRIEND AND BROTHER-IN-LAW "CARR," HIS GUARDIAN "WALKER," MUTUAL FRIENDS, BUSINESS AND TRAVEL PLANS
JEFFERSON, Thomas. Autograph letter signed. Williamsburg, VA, April 17, 1767.
Outstanding example of a very early Thomas Jefferson signed autograph letter, penned by him when he was just 24 years old, shortly out of law school. A warm, effervescent, at times jocular, and at times serious letter addressed to his close collegiate friend, John Page, with whom he remained a close friend for the rest of his life. In the letter Jefferson mentions his own wife and family, his close friend and brother-in-law "Carr," his guardian "Walker," business plans, mutual friends, and travel plans. An incredible piece: only nine years later the author would produce the Declaration of Independence. $25,000.
