About this Item

This wealthy clothing merchant made a name for himself as mayor of New York when during the infamous Draft Riots of 1863 he refused to waver in his support of the draft. Partly-printed DS, 1p, 8" X 3 3/4", New York, NY, 1863 November 9. Very good. Cancellation slashes lightly touch one letter of signature. City check printed in blue and drawn on the Broadway Bank (from the "Election Expenses" account), paying $125 to Terence M. Lynch for voter registration services rendered. LArge and ornate, with a nautical theme vignette featuring a sailor and a Native American maiden. Signed boldly by Opdyke as mayor and by two others. Bookseller Inventory # 16457
