1819 civil appointment for a public notary signed by Clinton when he was Governor of New York
Civil appointment signed "Dewitt Clinton" by Clinton and "Arch. Campbell Dep." By Campbell. 1 page, 15½x9¾ with Great Seal of the State of New York in raised round stamp in paper on left. March, 29, 1819. This document appoints Daniel Embury, Esq. of New York City as a public notary in and for the state of New York. Clinton (1769-1828) was New York state senator (1798-1802) U.S. Senator (1802-1803), Mayor of New York (1803-1807, 1808-1810 and 1811-1815) and Governor of New York (1817-1821, 1825-1828). DeWitt had been introduced to politics when he served as secretary to his uncle, New York's first Governor, George Clinton. In 1812, DeWitt Clinton was the unsuccessful Federalist candidate for President, losing in a close election to Democratic-Republican incumbent, James Madison by 128-89 electoral votes, 11-seven states. If Pennsylvania had gone Federalist, Clinton would have won, 114-103. He also introduced a bill in the New York Senate in 1811 to explore routes for what would become the Erie Canal and, after the War of 1812, appointed him to the commission to build the canal in 1816. Lightly toned, spotted and creased. Page has been folded in eighths and unfolded. Small tears in edges along folds. Otherwise in fine condition.
