    Gabriel Duvall Autograph Letter Signed "G. Duvall." One page, 7.75" x 10", Washington, July 31, 1811, to an unnamed recipient. Written in the transitional period from his serving as the first Comptroller of the Treasury (1802-1811) and serving as Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, Duvall writes in full: "Mr. Hamilton left the city a few days ago to make an excursion to Virginia. As soon as he returns I will wait on him with your letter. If I should not succeed with him I know of no other persons to whom an application may be made with any possibility of success." Modestly toned and with light foxing, the usual fold creases, and a small area of loss on the left margin, else very good.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
