About This Item

Extraordinarily versatile New York politico who served the Empire State in Congress (1843-45), as lieutenant governor (1848) and governor (1849-50), and in the Senate (1851-57), then acted as Ulysses S. Grant and (briefly) Rutherford B. Hayes' Secretary of State (1869-77). Printed DS, 1p, 16" X 10", Albany, NY, 25 January 1850. Very good. Faint age toning, with original folds; several small expert archival mends on verso. Attractive certificate appointing Stukely Ellsworth of Buffalo a notary public for Erie County, boldly signed at lower right by Fish in brown ink as governor. Ellsworth (1826-76), descended from Chief Justice Oliver Ellsworth and Benjamin Franklin, was a noted New York attorney who in 1850 had just entered the law. A handsome example.
