About this Item

Connecticut governor, representative and senator; attorney general under Polk and secretary of the navy under Buchanan. LS, 1p, 7 3/4" X 10", "Navy Department" [Washington, DC], 1858 December 16. Addressed to Captain J.R. Sands (1795-1883, active from War of 1812 through Civil War). Fine. Apparently Captain Sands had been presented gifts by a representative of the British government, and enquired from Toucey whether it was permissable for him to keep such things. A seemingly baffled Toucey replies, in part: "The Department has communicated with the Naval Committee of the Senate in relation to the presents tendered to you by H.M's Government. It, of course, will not object to any steps which you may take to expedite the matter.". Bookseller Inventory # 22687
