CALHOUN (1782-1850) entered Congress in 1811 as an ardent nationalist, a "War Hawk" eager for war with Britain, but his defense of slavery and southern regional interests eventually led him to enunciate the doctrines "nullification" (by states of federal laws they deemed unconstitutional) and "concurrent majority" (whereby no national laws could be enacted without the support of all the country's regions). Until the end of his life, however, Calhoun always hoped to preserve the Union. Calhoun served as President James Monroe's Secretary of War (1817-1825) and Vice President under John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson (1825-1832), resigning in 1832 to serve as U. S. Senator from South Carolina (1832-1843, 1845-1850). He was also President John Tyler's Secretary of State (1844-1845). JOHN STEELE (1789-1865), farmer and industrialist, was Governor of New Hampshire 1844-1846) and Deputy Grand Master of the Freemasons from 1838. THOMAS P. TREADWELL (1805-1878) was New Hampshire's Secretary of State (1843-1846). In addition to his foreign policy responsibilities, a Secretary of State is entrusted with the Great Seal of the United States, and certifies state documents in conformity with the "full faith and credit" clause of the US Constitution (Article IV, Section 1). Multiple mailing folds. Notches at folds. Heavily toned and creased. Paper seal at left edge. Corners worn and creased. Multiple unknown stains throughout document. Otherwise, fine condition.
