President Jackson’s scandalous cabinet
Description                           Estimate: $1,500+          

Ink signatures of Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren, Samuel D. Ingham, John H. Eaton, John Branch, Edward Livingston, William J. Duane, and Levi Woodbury on an off-white 5.5 x 3.5 slip clipped from a larger document. In very good condition, with closely cropped edges and scattered foxing. This rare assemblage of signatures represents Jackson’s first cabinet, which was intact for only two years from 1829 to 1831 due to the ‘Petticoat Affair,’ a scandal that essentially resulted in the resignation of everyone but the postmaster. Secretary of the Navy John Eaton had married the widowed Peggy O'Neale, who was subsequently ignored by the wives of other cabinet members because of a rumored affair. The tensions became so high that the only adequate resolution was a total reorganization of the cabinet. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
