President Grant sends an official letter to Peru's president

Unusual DS as president, one page both sides, 10.5 x 15.5, April 9, 1875. An official letter of state to the Constitutional President of the Government of Peru announcing the appointment of "Richard Gibbs, one of our distinguished citizens, to reside near the government of the Republic of Peru in the quality of as Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary of the United States of America." Signed at the conclusion by Grant, and countersigned by Secretary of State Hamilton Fish. In fine condition, with central horizontal and vertical fold and a bit of scattered light toning. A fine, bright example signed on the tenth anniversary of perhaps the most triumphant day of Grant's career.
