May 9th 1833 – A. J.” To the side in ink, in another hand: “Answd 11th May.” Above in a third hand, in pencil: “file this with letter of Mrs. / Jane C. Washington of 4 Jany.” Two other pencil notes relating to the action are below Jackson’s endorsement. Jane Charlotte Blackburn Washington (1786-1855), the wife of John Augustine Washington, nephew of George Washington, had apparently written Jackson on behalf of a disciplined naval midshipman. Old fold lines, as for mailing, but very good. Item #66704
