Autograph Letter Signed: "Charles E. Hughes" as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, 1p, 4¾x8. Washington, D.C., 1910 November 18. On his personal stationery, Hughes writes to Prof. A.H. Walker, Manhattan, N.Y. City. In full: "Your letter has been received and also a copy of your book for which I thank you. I shall be glad to examine it. Sincerely yours," Charles E. Hughes was Governor of New York (1907-1910) when President Taft appointed him Associate Justice. In 1916, Hughes resigned from the Supreme Court having received the Republican nomination for President; he lost to Wilson. President Harding appointed him Secretary of State in 1921, and he remained in that office when Coolidge became President in 1923, staying until 1925. When Chief Justice Taft retired in 1930 because of ill health, President Hoover appointed Hughes as Chief Justice, only the second man reappointed to the Supreme Court (the first was John Rutledge). Hughes served until he retired in 1941. Fine condition.
