U.S. Representative from Massachusetts, Massachusetts state senator, Mayor of Boston, President of Harvard College (1829-1845). Autograph Verse Signed dated 1860, Boston: "Let not thine eyelids close at parting day Till, with thyself communing, thou shalt say, What deed of good or evil have I done Since the last radiance of the morning sun? In strict review, the day before thee pass And see thyself in truth's unerring glass, If scorning self delusion's foreseeable ways Her solemn voice, reproving conscience raise, With keen contrition, aid Divine implore Each error to redeem and wrong no more; Or should that faithful guardian, witness bear That all thy actions, have been just & fair, Rejoice, and Heaven invoke, with soul sincere In spotless virtues path, to persevere. Josiah Quincy" Minor smudge to top three words which occurred apparently at the time the letter was written. 6½x8", Fine.
