American statesman (1760-1824) who was the youngest signer of the U.S. Constitution and who later served as the fourth Speaker of the House of Representatives and as a member of the Senate. Arrested in 1807 in connection with the Aaron Burr conspiracy case, he was never tried, but the scandal effectively ended his political career. ALS signed “Jona: Dayton,” one page, 8 x 9.75, September 19, 1797. Neatly penned letter to George Simpson, the cashier of the United States Bank, in full: "I send enclosed a bill drawn by the Surveyor General upon the Treasury which I have endorsed to you, and will, as the Secretary informs me, be paid at any time. Be so good as to pass this to my credit & then to inform me by letter in a short statement how my acc't stands with the Bank." In fine condition, with light show-through at the top from a small mounting remnant on the back, and a small bit of residue from an old clipping that was once affixed to the bottom. From the Collection of Dr. Lawrence E. Miller.
