GEORGE E. BADGER. ALS: "Geo. E. Badger", 2p, front and verso, 5¼x8. Raleigh, (no year) January 20. In part: "Your telegraph last night took me completely by surprise. Carroll has failed and is no longer infallible...I telegraphed you last night that I could not come...I have a few cases here that I must attend to. I lost a good fee by not being here a few days before...." Badger was Secretary of the Navy in 1841 under Harrison and Tyler until he resigned on September 11th along with four other members of Tyler's cabinet (all except for Secretary of State Daniel Webster) to protest the President's veto of a financial bill. He later was Whig Senator from North Carolina (1846-1855) and was nominated as Associated Justice by President Fillmore in 1853 but was not confirmed by his Senate colleagues. After his Senate term, he returned to Raleigh to resume his practice of law until his death in 1866. Fragile and worn. Lightly stained and soiled. Nicked torn edges, small portion torn out at top blank margin touching one letter. Body of letter fine with light show through. Erased pencil notes at corners. Lightly creased. Folds.
