Clipped signature from the closing of a letter
Clipped signature: "Donald Dickinson", 3¾x1. Donald M. Dickinson (1846-1917) was a lawyer and politician, serving from 1887 to 1889 as United States Post Master General. After a successful established law practice in his native Michigan, Dickinson began to pursue politics, working within the Democratic Party in Michigan and supporting Grover Cleveland's candidacy for President. After Cleveland became President, he offered Dickinson a position with the recently created Civil Service Commission, which Dickinson declined; he accepted Cleveland's second offer as Postmaster General. He remained in the position until the end of Cleveland's term, later returning to his law practice. Stain on top margin, slightly touching signature. Small tear on top edge. Corners lightly worn. Top right corner clipped. Fold through center. Light surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
