The four government employees pen their names on this album leaf
Signatures: “J.Q. Chenoweth/ First Auditor/ Jan 12th 1889.”, “O.B. Hallam/ deputy 1st auditor” and “John G. Cowie/ Chief Clerk U.S. Secret Service”, in iron gall ink, 6¾x8¼. J.Q. CHENOWETH (1841-?) was a lawyer and politician who served as First Auditor of the U.S. Treasury during the Cleveland administration. After being admitted to the Kentucky Bar, Chenoweth fought in the American Civil War on the side of the confederacy. He then went on to represent Fannin County Texas in the Texas legislature. ORRIN B. HALLAM (1849-1913) was the deputy first auditor under Chenoweth during President Cleveland's administration. A lawyer by trade, Hallam practiced law at his eponymous firm Hallam & Hallam after retiring from government service. JOHN G. COWIE was the chief clerk of the U.S. Secret Service division of the treasury department during President Cleveland's tenure in office. Final signer merits further research. Toned, especially at edges. Left edge irregular from being removed from binding. Otherwise, fine condition.
