CHARLES EVANS HUGHES
The Governor of New York writes to a chairman, gladly accepting his invitation to serve as a member for the Ninth Annual Victory Ball of the American Legion
Typed letter signed: "Charles E. Hughes", in black ink, 1 page, 7½x9¼. Permanent Court of International Justice. The Hague, Holland. August 28, 1929. In full: "Dear Mr. Cox: Your letter of August 17th has been forwarded to me here and it will give me pleasure to serve as a member of the honorary committee for the Ninth Annual Victory Ball of the American Legion New York County. Sincerely yours". Charles E. 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). Hughes served until he retired in 1941. Multiple mailing folds. Edges and corners worn. Signature mirrored above. Fine condition.
