THOMAS EWING - AUTOGRAPH SENTIMENT SIGNED - DOCUMENT 17162

 
THOMAS EWING
Ewing signs a sentiment on a 7¼x3¼ page
Autograph Sentiment Signed: "I am very Respectfully/Yours/T. Ewing", cut from a letter, recipient's name in Ewing's hand at lower left. 1p, 7¼x3¼. Thomas Ewing (1789-1871) served as U.S. Senator from Ohio from 1831-1837. President William Henry Harrison appointed him Secretary of the Treasury March 5, 1841. Harrison died on April 4, 1841 and was succeeded by Vice President John Tyler. Ewing served until September 13, 1841, when Tyler's Cabinet, with the notable exception of Secretary of State Daniel Webster, resigned in protest to a Tyler veto of a financial bill. Ewing was the first U.S. Secretary of the Interior, appointed by President Zachary Taylor, serving from March 8, 1849 to July 23, 1850. He resigned to return to the Senate, filling an unexpired term but defeated for re-election. Ewing was the foster father of Union general William Tecumseh Sherman (who was baptized in Ewing's home), and later Sherman's father in law. His son, Thomas Ewing, Jr., was also a Union general in the Civil War. President Andrew Johnson nominated Ewing for another Cabinet post, Secretary of War, in 1868, but the Senate, enraged at the firing of Secretary William Stanton, refused to consider his nomination. Notes in unknown hand at lower blank area. Heavy mounting remnants on verso show through. Lightly yellowed, stained and creased. Folds do not touch signature. 1/8-inch separation at vertical fold touches "p" in respectfully.
