About this Item

The Republican politician from New York served that state in Congress (1877-87) and as senator (1887-93). ANS, 1p, 5" X 7½", New York, NY, 1889 October 25. Addressed to Mrs. Barker. Very good. Faintly age toned. On letterhead of "Office of Morton, Bliss & Co.," Hiscock fulfills some unnamed request: "I acknowledge the honor of your request and comply with great pleasure." Boldly penned in brown ink. Quite strange that the seated U.S. Senator would be writing on letterhead of this banking firm, founded by the man who in 1887 Hiscock defeated in the caucus for the New York senate seat -- former representative and ambassador and then- current vice president Levi P. Morton. Odd, that -- and the significance, if any, is unclear. Bookseller Inventory # 40775
