Scarce presidential note and free frank regarding an appointment originally made by Lincoln

ANS, in pencil, as president, signed “A. J.,” on a 3.5 x 2.5 card, in full, “Let Nicholas Vedder be entered on the list of Pay Masters to be nominated.” And a free-franked envelope, 5 x 2.75, addressed in pencil by Johnson, “Col. Wm. G. Moore, At Home,” and franked in the upper right, as president, “From the Pres.” A pencil notation by Moore along the bottom of the envelope reads, “Andrew Johnson’s handwriting, Nov. 17, 1865.” Mounting remnants to reverse of card, a bit of light soiling to both, and a few small edge tears to envelope, otherwise fine condition. Following the conclusion of the Civil War, William Moore served as President Johnson’s private secretary, the capacity in which he received this note to add Nicholas Vedder to a paymasters’ nominating list; Vedder had been personally recommended and appointed for his paymaster position in Illinois by Abraham Lincoln back in 1861. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
