GEORGE WASHINGTON (American, 1732-1799) 1ST PRESIDENT OF THE U.S. Framed autograph 2-1/2 page letter addressed to “Tobias Lear” (Secretary to the President) dated Philadelphia, 21st March 1796. Signed “G. Washington”. The letter references the potential sale of land and whether Washington would be advised to do such. The following is a transcript of the letter:

My dear Sir, Your letter of the 14th Inst. did not get to my hands until Saturday. Mine dated the 13th acknowledging the receipt of your favors of the 26th. Ulto. & 2d. inst. must I presume have been received in due coarse of the Post, and therefore to repeat the contents of it is unnecessary.

A Mr. Summers of Alexandria is very desirous of purchasing my vacant lot in that Town; – and having been told that nothing short of a high price would induce me to sell it, makes the offer contained in the enclosed letter. Whether this offer is high or otherwise, depends upon comparison, the means of doing which is not within my reach, but thro’ the medium of another, & therefore I give you the trouble of making some inquiry in the matter at any time when you are in Alexandria. I have no wish to part with the lot unless I can do it upon advantageous terms; and can dispose of the money in a more productive manner. I had thoughts of building on it, but this would be attended with trouble and perhaps a good deal of imposition as it could not be properly attended to in the execution of the work. And besides workman’s wages, and materials are very high at this time.

A thought has run through my mind (since I began this letter) whether, as I have a prospect from the high price of flour, of raising five or six thousand dollars from the same of it; it might not be eligible with that sum & the sale of the vacant lot (to Summers) to make the purchase suggested in one of your former letter to me? If that property is in an eligible p[lace (and I wish to know where it lies) or whether or not if it would bring ten p. Cent on the purchase money, it would certainly be more immediately advantageous to me than to let a part of the sum, necessary to command it, lay dead in a vacant lot, which when built on, would only be to let. Mr. Dandridge’s ansr to Mr. Summer’s enclosed, is left open for your perusal and may be delivered to him or not, at any time you may fine it convenient.

As the Post hour is at hand and I have many letters to close, & prepare for the mail, I hardly know what I have written, or whether you will be able fully to comprehend my meaning. My love in which Mrs. Washington units is presented to Fanny & the children, and I am Dear Sir.

Your Affecte. Servt.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN (American, 1809-1865, 16th President) DOCUMENT WITH AUTOGRAPHS OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN, PRESIDENT, VICE PRESIDENT AND HIS CABINET. Hand drawn pen and ink and watercolored document dated April 1865, Washington, D.C. Bearing the signature of: Abraham Lincoln as 16th President, Vice President Andrew Johnson, Secretary of State William H. Seward, Secretary of the Treasury Schuyler Colfax, Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton, Secretary of War Gideon Welles, Secretary of the Interior J. P. Usher, Postmaster General W. Dennison and Attorney General James Speed.

All within a hand drawn pen and ink oval border formed by American flags intertwined with laurel wreaths, the surmounted by a shield bearing the stars and stripes, with watercolor tinting of the flags and shield. Housed in a gilt molded wood frame with ivory matte. A rare Presidential souvenir. Lincoln, Johnson and the members of the cabinet probably signed this highly decorative piece as a souvenir to be offered at sale at one of the Sanitary Commission Fairs planned for the spring or summer of 1865 to benefit the Union Army hospitals during the Civil War. It can not be said with certainty when, in the first two weeks of April, Lincoln and the others signed this piece and it is unknown when it was offered at one of the fairs. Lincoln’s assassination was on April 14th, 1865. If this handsome piece retains much of its mystery it retains, as well a certain wistful charm. It stands as a momento of the last weeks of Lincoln’s life, when he looked forward to the end of the Civil War and a second four year term that he could devote to rebuilding the nation torn apart by armed conflict during his first administration. That dreams destruction turned this patriotically decorated leaf from a cheerful, conventional souvenir into a poignant memorial. PROVENANCE: Oliver R.
