American minister, politician, and Founding Father (1754-1807) who served in both the senate and congress on behalf of Georgia, and was the President pro tempore of the United States Senate. ALS signed “Abr. Baldwin,” one page, 7.75 x 6, no date. Letter to his half-brother, Henry Baldwin, an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, in full: "The vote was taken several days ago on the French treaty, 16 for ratifying 14 against it, as it requires two thirds the question was lost Livermore, Chipman, Payne, Green & Theodore Foster voted with us 1 Republicans for ratifying. There is now under consideration a vote to provide for reconsidering in such cases, it will probably prevail, and on reconsidering some of them will relent, and ratify with two conditions that the 2d article be struck out, and a clause added to limit the treaty to 8 or 10 years. It is still as uncertain as ever what will be done on the subject of the Presidential tye; there good federalists appear to me to be ready for any mischief or confusion." In fine condition, with several circular stains along the top. From the Collection of Dr. Lawrence E. Miller.
