Maryland-born politician (1723-1790), one of America's Founding Fathers, and signer of the Constitution. ALS signed “Daniel S. Thos Jenifer,” one page, 7.5 x 9, December 7, 1786. Letter to James McHenry, in part: "The Treasurer refused to discount with Gen'l Williams any part of the Governor & Counsels order on him in your favor. I confess that I was surprised at the refusal…The Gen'l promised to represent the business to the Council. I believe he had not an opportunity of doing it whilst in Town. I am certain that if the Council had the same information, that was given to the Treasurer, that was, that the order would facilitate the Collection of unappropriated duties which probably would not be received before March." In fine condition, with seal-related paper loss to the integral address leaf. From the Collection of Dr. Lawrence E. Miller.
