Charles Evans Hughes signs an autograph card in black ink attached to its mailing letter.
Autograph Sentiment signed: "Sincerely yours,/Charles E. Hughes/May 1, 1922", 3½x2¼ attached to typed letter. In full: "Your letter of April 28, addressed to the Secretary of State, has been received. The Secretary directs me to say that he takes pleasure in meeting your wishes. His autograph is enclosed herewith. Very truly 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.
