HAMILTON FISH
Certifying copies of documents in the State Department.
Partly Printed DS: "Hamilton Fish" as Secretary of State, 1 page, 7½x9¾. Washington, 1870 February 28. In full: "To all to whom these presents shall come, Greeting: I Certify That the documents hereunto annexed [not present] are the copies from the records in this Department." Vignette of U.S. seal at top center. Hamilton Fish (1808-1893) served New York as Governor (1849-1850), Congressman (1843-1845) and Senator (1851-1857) and was President Grant's only Secretary of State (1869-1877). Originally elected as a Whig, Fish joined the new Republican Party during his term in the Senate. He proved a very capable Secretary of State, peacefully resolving several thorny international disputes. His son, grandson and great-grandson, each named Hamilton Fish, represented New York in the House of Representatives. Stained at left margin where ribbon rested on paper. Lightly creased. Conservator's paper at right edge of verso reinforces tears left by ribbon now covering them. Overall, fine condition.
