Description


LS as president signed “C. A. Arthur,” one page, 4.75 x 8, black-bordered Washington letterhead, October 15, 1881. Letter to John Davis Long, former governor of Massachusetts, written less than a month after taking office following the death of James A. Garfield. In full: "I have your letter of the 7th instant, presenting the name of Chief Justice Gray for the Supreme Bench. I thank you cordially for your expressions of confidence and good wishes." In fine condition. President Arthur would indeed nominate Horace Gray to the Supreme Court, filling the vacancy created by the death of Nathan Clifford. The Senate quickly confirmed him, and Gray took his seat on the bench on January 9, 1882; he would serve for over 20 years.
