Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $1,282.50 (includes buyer's premium)


Wife (1757-1854) of founding father Alexander Hamilton, who became co-founder and deputy director of the first private orphanage in New York City. She did much to shape her husband's legacy after his death in a duel with Aaron Burr, and she has recently gained renewed recognition due to her portrayal in the popular musical Hamilton. Rare ALS signed “Eliz'th Hamilton,” one page, 5.5 x 7.75, April 11, 1850. Letter to one of her relatives, "Miss George Schuyler," in New York, requesting that furniture be "sent to me by that Boat that goes to George town." She goes on to mention her "son Philip," the youngest child of the Hamiltons. In very good to fine condition, with intersecting folds, trimmed edges, and a small area of seal-related paper loss to the integral address leaf. A scarce example as the very first Eliza Hamilton letter we have offered.
