    William McKinley Document Signed. Two pages, 10" x 16", Washington, D. C., August 19, 1901. Also signed by Attorney General Philander C. Knox. This document pardons Frederick L. Coburn, who was "convicted in the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia of embezzlement of post-office funds while in charge of a sub-station in the City of Washington". Coburn served his full prison term of one year and one day in the Ohio Penitentiary, located downtown Columbus, Ohio. McKinley pardoned Coburn after Coburn had served his term "in order to restore his civil rights". Folds; Department of Justice seal on page two near McKinley's signature. Very fine.
