PRESIDENT JEFFERSON DAVIS (CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA) - MANUSCRIPT LETTER SIGNED 06/10/1854 - HFSID 49422

 
JEFFERSON DAVIS. Manuscript Letter signed: "Jefferson Davis" as U.S. Secretary of War, 1p, 7¼x9¾. Washington, D.C., 1854 June 10. To Miss Eunice Andrews, Windsor, New Hampshire: "In full: "I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 5th ultimo asking if there is anything due for the services of your father Lieut. Arnins [?] Andrews in the Revolutionary war. The subject of pensions, bounty lands etc is not within the jurisdiction of the War Department, but to comply with your request I have obtained the enclosed report from the Pension Office [not included] on the subject, from which you will perceive that, unless evidence of further service by your father is produced, nothing further an be allowed by the Government. Very respectfully. Your obedient Servant." Jefferson Davis (1808-1889), the only President of the Confederate States (1861-1865), served two nonconsecutive terms in the U.S. Senate (1847-1851, 1857-1861). Davis, a West Pointer, commanded the First Regiment of Mississippi Riflemen in the Mexican War (1846-1847). He later served as Secretary of War under President Pierce (1853-1857). Davis, a reluctant convert to secession and one of the last southern legislators to leave Washington, nevertheless dedicated the rest of his life to the Confederate cause, refusing to countenance surrender until his capture by federal troops and devoting the rest of his life to justifying "the lost cause." Lightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
