    Description

    Abraham Lincoln Signed Endorsement as President, 1861 Autograph endorsement signed, "A. Lincoln," on the docket of a two page manuscript letter measuring 8" x 12" from E. R. Jewitt to Secretary of War Simon Cameron, Washington, July 10, 1861. In the letter Jewitt recommends, "...Mr. George W. Hoffman of Michigan as Paymaster in the regular Army..." Lincoln did not have an opinion on the matter and penned on the verso, "Respectfully referred to the Secretary of War. A. Lincoln July 15, 1861." Hand-written docket number affects several words in Lincoln's endorsement but is well clear of his signature. Slightly weak at folds, very light toning at extreme margins, otherwise in excellent condition. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
