FRANCIS E. SPINNER
Francis E. Spinner wrote this autograph letter in 1873, as Treasurer of the United States. In it, he replied to a question about when he was appointed Treasurer.
Autograph letter signed "F. E. Spinner". 1 page, 5x8, 1 sheet folded. Treasury of the United States, Washington, D. C., May 13, 1873. Addressed to Mr. E. A. Daniels, New York City. In full: "Your favor, of the 13th instant, has been received. I entered upon the duties of this office on March 22, 1861, now over twelve years ago. - Very respectfully yours,". Democrat Spinner (1802-1890) was a U. S. Representative from New York from 1855 to 1861. Two weeks after Spinner left Congress, President Abraham Lincoln appointed him Treasurer of the United States. He served through the Johnson and Grant administrations from March 16, 1861, until his resignation on July 1, 1875. During the Civil War, he hired women as clerks because they weren't subject to military service. He paid them well and defended their employment against critics. He was the first government administrator to hire women, and he continued to do so after the Civil War. Lightly toned, soiled and rippled. Folded once and unfolded. Mounting and adhesive remnants on verso (no show-through). Otherwise in fine condition.
