Clinton attests that since 1823 Richard Riker has been Recorder of the City of New York, and that full faith and credit may and ought to be given to his official actions. State seal (2¼x2¼) affixed at center left. From 1802-1803, DeWITT CLINTON was U.S. Senator, resigning to become Mayor of New York (1803-1807, 1808-1810 and 1811-1815).
