Docket on verso indicates year. Henry Clay, who was elected to the U.S. Senate to complete a resigned Senator's term at the age of 29, served from November 19, 1806 until March 3, 1807. Clay's 30th birthday was on April 12, 1807, so his service was rendered in contravention of the 30-year age requirement in the Constitution.

Except for 1821, Clay was Speaker of the House the years he served in that chamber. In 1814, Clay was one of the Commissioners who negotiated the end of the War of 1812, signing the Treaty of Ghent. He was John Quincy Adams' Secretary of State from 1825-1829 and unsuccessfully ran for President in 1824 (Democratic-Republican), 1832 (National Republican) and 1844 (Whig). Lightly creased. Lightly soiled. Overall, fine condition. In leather folio, Gallery of History style: 13¼x16.
