DescriptionWhiskey Rebellion Negotiator James Ross Autograph Letter Signed. One page, 8" x 14" Pittsburgh, March 28, 1799. James Ross writes in a beautiful handwritten letter to his friend Mr. Cochran after his return from a political trip to Pittsburgh that " ...the government is as usual, and that there are no symptoms of discontent at the land tax and universal condemnation of the violence in North Hampton... " at length expressing good wishes for the recovery of Mrs. Cochran. Boldly signed "James Ross". James Ross letters are like whiskey runners. They are seldom seen - but when they show up, they are greeted with enthusiasm. From the Henry E. Luhrs Collection.
