Description

    Henry Baldwin Autograph Letters (2) Signed. Both letters are written to Stephen Barlow of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. (1) One page, 8" x 9", January 29, 1813, Washington, concerning bank drafts. Baldwin, who is visiting Washington, D.C., closes the letter, "Nothing interesting going on. I hope to get away next week and am very tired of this d__d place." (2) One page, 7.75" x 10", February 12, 1813, n.p. [likely Washington, D.C.], again concerning money "to be deposited in Bank of Pittsburgh." These letters were written three years before attorney Baldwin (1780-1844) was elected to the U.S. Congress in 1816 and eighteen years before President Jackson appointed him as an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, a position in which he served from 1830 through 1844. The addressed page of each letter is missing paper, though not text. Uneven toning on page one of both letters. Both are in very good condition.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
