About this Item

Vice president (1869-73) in U.S. Grant's first administration, the political career of this Indiana representative and Speaker of the House ended abruptly with the Credit Mobilier scandal. Clipped signature, 2 3/4" X ½", n.p., n.d. [dated 1869 on verso in another hand]. Very good. Minor age toning; top and bottom edges of the "S" slightly cropped. A bold, decent example. Accompanied by a stunning 1866 steel engraved group portrait, "President, New Members of Cabinet & Others," consisting of 12 overlapping ovals, each containing a portrait: center stage, of course, is Andrew Johnson, and behind his left shoulder is Speaker of the House Colfax.
