    Abraham Lincoln Partly Printed Document Signed as President. DS "Abraham Lincoln" 1 page, 8" x 10", Washington, 2 February 1862. "I hereby authorize and direct the Secretary of State to affix the Seal of the United States to my ratification of the special treaty with Hanover for the abolition of the Stade Dues..." The King of Hanover's "Stade Dues" were tolls on vessels ascending the River Elbe. Lincoln announced his signing of the treaty abolishing them in mid-June 1862. File holes at left margin, silked on verso, with light soiling and toning. Very good.
