FRANKLIN MacVEAGH. Typed Memorandum signed: "Franklin MacVeagh" as Taft's Secretary of the Treasury, 1p, 5¼x8. Dublin, N.H., 1912 September 17. On sheet imprinted "Secretary of the Treasury". Headed: "Memorandum for Mr. Broughton from the Secretary". In full: "I have received the message from Richard, through you, about his economies at the house; and about Middleton's absence. I hope that long before now Middleton is back. Thank Richard for me. I am afraid I have not anything for Mr. Cooksey about the bank collection matter. I saw the Attorney-General at Beverly the other day and he spoke of the matter; but nothing at all transpired. I note from your memorandum of September 10th that you have been having very hot weather. Would you please send to me the samples that were sent over by Baring, Arundel and Company, last spring? These samples comprised not only shirting, but underwear. I am finally going to write to them; and I want to send some of these things back." "Broughton" written in unknown hand at upper margin, pencil check marks next to each of the four paragraphs. Attorney and banker Franklin MacVeagh (1837-1934) had been Director of the Commercial National Bank of Chicago for 29 years before serving as Taft's Secretary of Treasury (1909-1913). Credited with improving the efficiency of the Treasury Department, MacVeagh was also involved in the creation of the buffalo nickel. His brother, Wayne MacVeagh, briefly served as President Garfield's Attorney General (appointed in 1881, he resigned upon Garfield's death). Slightly creased. Lightly soiled at blank areas. Overall, fine condition.
