1. Luther Bradish (1783–1863) had been sent abroad in 1820 by JQA, then Secretary of State, to negotiate a treaty
with the Turkish government opening the Black Sea to American trade. Having spent
the next several years in travel in the Near East and in the Balkans, he was just
returning to the United States. Subsequently Bradish became a prominent New York Whig
