JOHN T. HOFFMAN
Autograph Sentiment signed as outgoing Governor of New York
Autograph Sentiment signed: "Very truly yours/John T. Hoffman", 1 page, 5½x9. Albany, N.Y., 1872 December 3. On letterhead of New York Executive Department. John Thompson Hoffman (1828-1888), previously a state judge, was Mayor of New York City (1866-1868) and Governor of New York (1869-1872). Although there was no evidence of wrongdoing by Hoffman, his friendship with several members of the Tweed gang tarnished his reputation at the end of an otherwise successful tenure. DeWitt Clinton in the 1820s was the first Mayor of New York to become Governor; Hoffman was the second. No one since has held both offices. Lightly stained. Left edge has uneven edge as page has been cut from larger piece. Otherwise, fine condition.
