    Description

    Autographs of Four Men Who Voted For George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. This quirky little collection was assembled late in 1860 by a Mr. Edward C. Chapman. He sought out elderly Lincoln supporters who had in their youth also cast ballots for Washington. Pasted to period album pages are autographed letters and notes by Samuel Jones, George Middleton, Daniel Waldo and Jonathan Wallingford. Wallingford's letter is the most explicit and he writes in part: "...I voted for George Washington and at most of the Presidential Elections down to Lincoln & Hamlin and voted for Lincoln and Hamlin which I think will be My last vote for President as I am past Ninety years...". Conversely, the aged Mr. Waldo wrote less but included a small albumen portrait of himself. Aging and stains, overall good condition. A wonderful group, the likes of which will be unlikely to appear again. Ex. Henry E. Luhrs Collection.
