DescriptionWilliam Henry Harrison Check Signed, 7.75" x 3.75", November 21, 1810, Vincennes [Indiana]. This early check, signed by Harrison while serving as the first governor of the Indiana Territory, reads in part, "To the Cashier of the Bank of the United States. Sir, On the 31st of December next or as soon after as you may receive my salary for the quarter ending on that day be pleased to pay unto Major E. H. Taylor or his order thirty two Dollars". Harrison, who later served as the ninth president, has the unfortunate distinction of serving the shortest term of any president: thirty days, from March 4, 1841, until April 4, 1841. He was likely a victim of the common cold. With several endorsements on verso. Small tear repair just above the "H" in "Harrison". Near very good.
