HAMILTON FISH
Autograph Letter signed in 1892, the year before his death, declining a request
Autograph Letter signed: "Hamilton Fish", 1 page, 5x8. New York, 1892 April 2. On black-bordered stationery to Darvin C. Pavey, Daily Evening Times, Portsmouth, New Hampshire. In full: "I appreciate the compliment of the request conveyed in your letter of 26 late& the kind words which accompany it. I cannot however undertake what you request. With much respect, Very truly yours". Hamilton Fish (1808-1893) served New York as Governor (1849-1850), Congressman (1843-1845) and Senator (1851-1857) and was Grant's only Secretary of State (1869-1877). As Secretary of State, Fish contributed to the peaceful settlement of several international disputes. His son, grandson and great-grandson, each named Hamilton Fish, also represented New York in the House of Representatives. The mourning paper used here was probably in memory of his wife, Julia Kean Fish, who had died in 1887. Fine condition.
