About this Item

3 pages (front and back), 9.75 x 7.75 inches, Washington, January 12, 1815, to Jedediah Morse, the father of American geography, explaining that he has taken to secure from a Mr. Mallory, the owner of a book store in Georgetown, a deposition which Morse needs for a pending lawsuit in Boston. Ward also comments on the affairs of Congress: "Since some time in November we have been constantly engaged upon the several revenue bills for filling the ranks of the regular army, calling out the militia. We have met at ten for the most part and sit till 4, 5, and 6 o'clock. No dispatches have been received from our envoys, since those arrived which were published." Note: The Treaty of Ghent ending the War of 1812 was signed in Belgium on December 24, 1814. Foxing prevalent at the left margin of the first sheet (due to previous mounting) but does not affect the text. Very good condition overall. Lawyer and jurist who also served as Congressman from Massachusetts from 1813 - 1817. Bookseller Inventory # 273332
