Rare presidential pardon issued at the start of the Mexican-American War

Partly-printed DS as president, one page, 6.75 x 7.5, June 2, 1846. President Polk authorizes and directs “the Secretary of State to affix the Seal of the United States to the pardon granted to William H. Hines.” Boldly signed at the conclusion in black ink by Polk. Double-matted with a portrait and nameplate to an overall size of 20 x 14. In fine condition. This pardon came just two weeks after Congress declared war on Mexico at Polk’s request, hoping to resolve the ongoing dispute over Texas. A rare, boldly signed document from a defining moment of Polk’s administration. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
