DAVID D. DAVIS
He signs as US Senator in 1881
Signature: "David Davis/U S Senate/Illinois/Washington 1881", as US Senator, 3½x2¼ card. 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). Lightly toned. Mounting residue on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
