[Abraham Lincoln]: Manuscript of Senate Resolution of Support. The main item in this lot is a 2-page manuscript, unsigned but in the hand of Vermont Senator James Collamer, written on 8" x 10" bifolium stationery. It presents resolutions adopted at a meeting of Republican United States Senators which urge "a vigorous & successful prosecution of the war" and that the "Cabinet should be exclusively composed of Statesmen who are the cordial, resolute, unwavering supporters of the principles & purposes first above stated." It is endorsed on the third page by Iowa Senator James Grimes, certifying that it is "an original in the hand writing of the late Judge Collamer of Vt. of the paper presented to President Lincoln... referred to by Mr. Evarts in his speech in the impeachment trial." It is accompanied by a September 26, 1868 letter from Grimes to Evarts transmitting the document, along with the original mailing envelope addressed to Evarts with a free frank of Senator Grimes (loss in upper left corner not affecting any of the writing).

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
