    Description

    Abraham Lincoln 1862 Autograph Endorsement Signed "A. Lincoln" as president on docketing portion of an 8" x 10" sheet, [Washington], January 11, 1862. He writes in full: "I shall be glad for the within request to be granted, if it can be consistent[?] with the public service." Very light toning at folds, otherwise very clean and bright with a dark signature. This note was written the very day that Secretary of War Simon Cameron resigned his office to be replaced by Edwin Stanton. A nice specimen.
