Description

    Justice David Davis Autograph Letter Signed Signed, "David Davis," as Associate Justice, one page, 5" x 8". Washington, March 18, (1872). (To New York lawyer E. W. Stoughton). In full: "The clerk says 147 & 148 will not be reached until about the 1st of April - Judge Curtis is I believe in the cases with you - & he is now here & will doubtless keep watch and advise you. By the end of the week, I should think, I can learn something more definite. I want to see you & will defer my talk until I see you - Our Hotel has fallen off & I can't recommend it for Mrs Stoughton should she come with you. Please present me most kindly to Mrs S - Do you hear any change of Judge Nelson? I have no hope of ever seeing him again in Washington. I hope his life may be spared for many years & with health enough to enjoy the Society of his family & friends." Docketed on verso, probably by Stoughton: "Judge Davis / March 18/72." Davis, appointed by his friend Abraham Lincoln in 1862, resigned from the Court in 1877 to become U.S. Senator from Illinois. Fine condition. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
