Senator Davis signs while in Bloomington in 1885
Signature: "David Davis/Bloomington/Illinois/April 8/1885", 3x2 card affixed to 8½x11 sheet. Ink caption (unknown hand) at upper margin. From 1848 to 1862, Davis (1815-1886) presided over the renowned Eighth Judicial Circuit in Illinois, famous because Abraham Lincoln practiced in its courts. An intimate of Lincoln (they often bunked together when traveling the circuit), Davis successfully managed Lincoln's campaign to secure the Republican nomination for the presidency in Chicago in 1860. Davis was appointed by President Lincoln as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States in 1862, serving until he resigned in 1877 to become Senator from Illinois (1877-1883). Slightly creased at upper right blank corner. Lightly soiled, pinhead-size stain at lower left blank margin. Mounting sheet is lightly creased, 3 file holes at blank left margin. Fine condition.
