American statesman, diplomat, and jurist (1803-1881) who served on the Supreme Court from 1858 to 1881. ALS, one page, 7.5 x 9.75, November 30, 1832. Letter to Ebenezer Mosely, in part: "I would observe that upon enquiry and examination I find the land described in Recker's deed to the Bank is a Gore of land attached to lot No. 12 on range M and is called in the Bank deed No. 13. This gore contains about forty acres and is worth perhaps one hundred Dollars. It has sometimes been claimed by the owners of lot No. 12…The lot was formerly worth much more before it was steeped of its timber." In very good to fine condition, with several fold splits (two showing old repairs on the back), and light show-through at the corners from old mounting remnants on the back. Accompanied by an engraved portrait bearing a facsimile signature. From the Collection of Dr. Lawrence E. Miller.
