DANIEL MANNING
Slip signed and dated by Daniel Manning in 1887, in the final days of his tenure as President Grover Cleveland's Secretary of the Treasury. He died ten months after the date on this signature.
Signature: "Daniel Manning/Feb 2 1887". Pencil notations in upper left corner in unknown hand. 3½x1¾ card. Manning signed this slip of paper less than two months before he retired as United States Secretary of the Treasury and about ten months before he died. Manning (1831-1887, born in Albany, New York) was an editor and owner of the Albany Argus and chairman of the New York Democratic Committee before being appointed Secretary of the Treasury (1885-1887) under President Grover Cleveland. Before retiring due to ill health, he advocated basing the dollar on both gold and silver. This was a rather important issue to a young United States. Eastern bankers wanted it backed by gold, while Westerners wanted it backed by silver (the West had many large silver mines, after all). He also worked on a tariff that became the McKinley Tariff of 1890, which lowered customs duties. Lightly toned and creased. Top and left edges are lightly discolored. Neatly torn from album or notebook at right edge. Otherwise in fine condition.
