Civil War-dated partly-printed DS as president, one page, 20 x 15.5, October 25, 1864. President Lincoln requests “His Majesty the King of Siam” to accept his appointment of Amzi Wood as “Consul of the United States of America at Bangkok.” Signed at the conclusion by President Lincoln and Secretary of State William H. Seward. Embossed in the lower left with the presidential seal. Framed and in very good to fine condition.

Allies since 1818, the US and Siam strengthened their relationship further in 1856 with the signing of the Harris Treaty, promoting free trade and imbuing both countries with favored nation status. His attention firmly focused on the Civil War and his own reelection campaign, Lincoln trusted Secretary of State Seward to handle nearly all appointments and foreign policy matters at this time. With the fall of Atlanta at the hands of Sherman in early September, and Grant’s victory at Cedar Creek on October 19th finally ending the Valley Campaigns, Lincoln earned a landslide victory in the presidential election only two weeks after signing this document. Ex. Scriptorium, August 15, 1988. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
