GROVER CLEVELAND, CO-SIGNED BY: DANIEL MANNING
President Grover Cleveland and his Secretary of the Treasury Daniel Manning signed this in 1885 to appoint a Second Lieutenant in the United States Revenue Service.
Civil appointment signed "Grover Cleveland" as President and "Daniel Manning" as Secretary of the Treasury. 1 page, 20¾x15¾. June 1, 1885. Cleveland and Manning signed this document to appoint Daniel P. Foley a Second Lieutenant in the United States Revenue Service until the next session of Congress. CLEVELAND (1837-1908, born in Caldwell, New Jersey), formerly Mayor of Buffalo and Governor of New York (1883-1885) served as the 22nd and 24th President (1885-1889 and 1893-1897). He won the popular vote all three times he ran(1884, 1888, 1892), losing the electoral vote and the presidency in 1888 to Benjamin Harrison. He was the only Democrat elected President in more than a half centurybetween the departure of Buchanan (1861) and the inauguration of Wilson (1913). MANNING (1831-1887, born in Albany, New York) was an editor and owner of the Albany Argus and chairman of the New York Democratic Committee before being appointed Secretary of the Treasury (1885-1887) under President Grover Cleveland. Before retiring due to ill health, he advocated basing the dollar on both gold and silver. This was a rather important issue to a young United States. Eastern bankers wanted it backed by gold, while Westerners wanted it backed by silver (the West had many large silver mines, after all). He also worked on a tariff that became the McKinley Tariff of 1890, which lowered customs duties. Lightly toned, soiled, stained and creased. Folded once and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
