MONROE, JAMES
JAMES MONROE . An attractive full-page autograph letter signed, as President, Washington, April 30, 1821. In constant financial difficulties, Monroe appeals to an unnamed correspondent for help. "I have received your letter with a deed renewing the former one, which Mrs. Monroe & I will execute, when required, with pleasure." "I have also rec'd a notice for the payment of two thousand dolls, & another of 404, on the 4th of May, which it will accommodate me, much, if the bank will aid me, to arrange, in three monthy payments, by equal instalments. I will give my checks on the bank of Columbia, in that manner, including the interest, which becomes due on each. The large sums, which the settlement of remaining accounts for the winter, require from me, at this time, is my motive for this request…" As most Southern plantation owners who lived from crop sale to crop sale, as most farmers do, it is clear that at this time of year, there was a cash flow problem for Presidents and ordinary farmers alike. 1 page, 4to. With engraved portrait. The two: [ref:6947]
