This is for an letter dated November 21,1851 from Civil War Union General John A. Dix to Henry S. Randall Elect regarding Randall’s election to be the next New York Secretary of State. Handwritten and signed by Dix, it provides an interesting commentary as part of a recommendation to Randall to bring on someone who had worked for Dix previously even though the person was let go for being “a Democrat”. Dear Sir – Clerk John sp? , who was removed from the office of the Secretary of State because he was a Democrat, is “xxx” of being restored. He was one of the most faithful & attentive clerks in the office while I was Secretary and his handwriting is admirably suited either to copying or recording. I take great pleasure in commending him to your consideration & I hope you may think John “xxxxx” him to a position from which he was ejected for “opinion’s” sake. Boldly signed John A. 2 sided and in very nice condition with folds and guaranteed original. This item is in the category “Collectibles\Autographs\Historical”.
