Hughes sends a thank you note in response to a kind letter
Typed Letter Signed: "Charles E. Hughes". 1 Page 8x10½. On Hughes, Schurman & Dwight Attorneys & Counsellors at Law letterhead to Martin Taylor, Esq., New York, New York 1930, February 17. In Full: "My Dear Mr. Taylor: I appreciate most cordially your very kind letter. Very sincerely yours," Charles Evans Hughes (1862-1948) 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). The Hughes court approved many exercises of federal power, but struck down a number of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal programs. Hughes served until he retired in 1941. Two filing holes at left edge. Two vertical, three horizontal fold creases. Top left corner chipped. Pencil note (unknown hand) at top right corner. Pencil note (unknown hand) at bottom middle. Otherwise fine condition.
