    Aaron Burr Autograph Letter Signed twice "A. Burr" and a scarce full signature, "Aaron Burr". Two pages, 7" x 7.75", Albany, February 28, 1825 to T. H. Flandrau concerning legal matters. He writes, in part: "Your two letters of the 25th have been recd-the first containing the original will of M.E. Zorn - the other, a list of V. Berk case - I regret the trouble you have had; but I see no ground for a move to set aside the Inquests. If you should see Graham, tell him that I hope to give him a better cause when I shall gain ask his services. Do not immediately enter a plea for Jost. I may, no doubt be done any time during the sitting of the Court; but draw the costs and give notice of taxn. Before Howe for some day not earlier than the 8th Mar. If you should have no objections, you may be atty of record in this suit. 10 p.m.-have just come from the Stat house-no news of Hossak. Send up my power of atty form Mrs. Bolton-Desire young Thurman to send to his father who is now here, copies of the Wills of his G. Grandfather Francis & of his G. Grandmother Susannah - desire him to copy them both on one large sheet, noting when they were proved & at whose request & whether John T. qualified as Exr- also to send at the same time an Extract from a Book which he has, of the houses belonging to them F. & S. in London." Following his trial for treason and subsequent self-imposed European exile, Aaron Burr returned to New York City in 1812 where he began his final career as a successful, albeit obscure, attorney. He died in New York in 1834. Small loss from seal tear repaired, usual folds, light toning, else very good. Ex. Henry E. Luhrs Collection
