Item Description:

Governor of New York William Henry Seward HAND-WRITTEN response and acceptance of the resignation of the New York Secretary of State John Canfield Spencer, WHO RESIGNED HIS POSITION TO BECOME THE UNITED STATES SECRETARY OF WAR UNDER JOHN TYLER!! Spencer wrote his letter of resignation to Seward on the 11th, he accepted the position of US Secretary of War on the 12th AND THIS RESPONSE FROM SEWARD WAS WRITTEN ON THE 20TH!!

A TRUE PIECE OF NEW YORK HISTORY.

This ALS is one of the most historical and important signed letters from William Seward in private hands today!

The letter reads: "Sir, on my return to the city after our absence of a few days I received your letter of the eleventh containing your resignation of the office of Secretary of State. I am very respectfully your obedient servant. William H. Seward."

Letter also reads: "The Honorable John C. Spencer Washington."

Back of letter reads: "1841 Wm Seward Oct 20/41 Acknowledging receipt of J.C.S. resignation as Secretary of State for New York."

Seward, went on of course, to be a U.S. Senator and the United States Secretary of State under Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson. John Canfield Spencer served as Secretary of War as well as Secretary of the Treasury under President John Tyler. Condition: Letter has some light toning with a tear at the far right that is very small. Nothing affects words/text. Browned at extreme edges. Fold evidence as it was used as correspondence.
