Description  

Distinguished statesman, US senator, secretary of state, speaker of the house, and three-time presidential candidate (1777–1852) who became known as the ‘Great Compromiser’ for his support of the Union prior to the Civil War. ALS signed “H. Clay,” one page, 7.75 x 9.75, October 20, 1832. Letter written as the Whig candidate for president, to prominent Ohio politician Thomas Ewing, in part: “I am afraid you have lost your governor—an event which I feared. But you will do better in Novr. as we shall, especially if you are completely organized as we are…I will thank you to send me as soon as possible the returns of the votes in your County…Information to us is suppressed by some of Jackson P.[ost] Masters.” Also hand-addressed on the reverse of the second integral sheet by Clay to “The Honble Thomas Ewing, Lancaster, Ohio,” and franked in the upper right, “Free, H. Clay.” Clay’s name is also written in another hand to a lower corner. Small tape-repaired separations to intersecting folds and show-through from wax seal remnants (minimally affecting signature), and a small area of paper loss to the second page from seal removal, otherwise fine condition. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
