Signature acquired in 1840
Autograph Sentiment signed: "Your obedient Servant/Charles Gordon/Atherton", 4x1 slip. Pencil note (unknown hand): "C. N. H. June 26.40". Charles Gordon Atherton (1804-1853) practiced law and served in the New Hampshire legislature before representing that state in the US House of Representatives (1837-1843). A states rights Democrat, Atherton successfully sponsored a series of resolutions forbidding the House to accept petitions calling for the abolition of slavery. This ban became known as the "Atherton gag." Atherton later served in the US Senate (1843-1849, 1853), dying in office. Irregular cut edges. Glue remnant from hole reinforces at right and left not affecting signature. Otherwise, fine signature.
