About This Item

This New York attorney and politician served that state as a Federalist in Congress (1799-1801) and in the state assembly (1796) and state senate (1810-13), though he lost the gubernatorial race in 1810; in later years he served as a New York Supreme Court justice (1814-21). Interesting ADS, 1p, 8" X 5", New York, NY, 1796 February 26. Very good. Large triangular chip at lower left (not affecting text) and other minor edgewear. The 27-year-old brand-new state legislator requests his salary -- and likely his very first, since he served in the New York State Assembly only in 1796 and this request comes in February: "The Treasurer of the State of New York willl please to pay... the Sum which shall be certified to be due to me by the Speaker of the House of Assembly for my Services as a Member of that House during the Session of 1796...." Boldly and attractively penned in brown ink.
