GEORGE DEWEY. TLS: "George Dewey" as Admiral, 1p, 8x10½. Washington, 1900 January 27. To the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, Brooklyn, N.Y. In full: "Please accept my thanks for thre copy of the Brooklyn Eagle Almanac, which you so kindly sent me." During the Spanish-American War, George Dewey destroyed the Spanish squadron in the Battle of Manila Bay (July 1, 1898). In March 1899, Dewey was made Admiral of the Navy, a rank created especially for him and the highest held by an American naval officer. In April, 1900, three months after he wrote this letter, Admiral Dewey announced from Washington his willingness to serve as President "if the American people want me for this high office". They didn't. Folds, not at signature. Creased, worn edges with 2 nicks at right edge (all intact). Shaded at upper and right margins.
