Description


American lawyer and statesman (1740-1821) who served as President of the Continental Congress from 1782 to 1783 and later became a US Representative from New Jersey and director of the United States Mint. ALS, one page, 8 x 10, April 26, 1799. Letter to New Jersey Congressman and Constitution signer Jonathan Dayton, in full: "I am applied to be a Friend in Virginia, to give him some intelligence relating to the life or death of a Thomas Butter, who it is said removed from Virginia to Elizabeth Town, some few years before the war. My memory does not serve me, relative to any such Person living in Elizabeth Town, yet I may be mistaken: shall I beg the favour of you to inquire among your Neighbors, if any such Person did reside there within Thirty years past, and if so, what has become of him. Will you excuse this Trouble, as it will serve a worthy man, for whom I have a great Esteem. Mrs. Boudinot & Mr. Bradford join me in respectful Compliments to Mrs. Dayton and the young Ladies." In very good to fine condition, with several extra horizontal folds, and three binder dings to the left edge. From the Collection of Dr. Lawrence E. Miller.
