Boutwell sends a letter as U.S. Senator, explaining that "the few lies that are reported to me do not disturb me."
Autograph Letter Signed: "Geo. S. Boutwell" as U.S. Senator, 1½p, 5x8. Washington, 1876 January 28. On official Senate Chamber stationery, Boutwell writes to Luke Bemis, Esq., Glen Mills, Pa. In full: "I spoke with Mr. Knox and I do not think he has ever given Carnought the story that either Bosie, yourself or myself were concerned in the paper business. The World is greatly given to lying & the few lies that are reported to me do not disturb me. Mrs. Bancroft and Miss Ella Shapley are with us." "The World" was a New York newspaper. While Congressman, Boutwell was one of the five members of the House of Representatives appointed as impeachment managers against President Andrew Johnson, acting as attorneys for the prosecution. While serving as Grant's Secretary of the Treasury (1869-1873), Boutwell was elected to complete newly elected Vice President Henry Wilson's term in the U.S. Senate (1873-1877). Multiple mailing folds. Toned at edges. Notches at top edge. Lightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
