In full: "The bond, whereof you have transmitted a certified copy in your letter of the 28th inst, given by D. A. Brayton and sureties, for premises known as 'Brayton's warehouse' as a warehouse of Class 3, is hereby approved. Very respectfully, Your obedient servant."

August 5, 1862". Salmon Portland Chase (1808-1873), a candidate for the 1860 Republican presidential nomination, served as Lincoln's Secretary of the Treasury from 1861 until his resignation in October 1864. Two months later, Lincoln appointed him Chief Justice, a position in which Chase served until his death in 1873. In one of his first acts, Chase appointed John Rock as the first Black attorney to argue cases before the Supreme Court. In March 1868, Chase presided over the impeachment trial of President Johnson in the U.S. Senate. Chase was a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination that year, but he lost support because of his support for voting rights for Black men. Lightly creased and soiled. Ink has spread at some words. Binding holes at blank left margin, irregular cut at upper edge. Overall, fine condition.
