MARTIN VAN BUREN. Partly Printed DS: "M Van Buren/Atty Genl" on verso, 1p, 7¾x12¾. Albany, New York, 1817 October. Filled out by the 35-year-old Attorney General of New York with over 40 words in his hand. In part: "The People of the State of New-York, by Martin Van Buren, their Attorney-General, complain of William Britton Defendant in Custody of a plea that he render to the said People Fourteen Hundred Dollars of debt...." Five line docket in Van Buren's hand. Filed on November 24, 1817. On February 17, 1815, the New York State Legislature had appointed Democratic-Republican Martin Van Buren as Attorney General of New York. In 1817, Federalist DeWitt Clinton became Governor of New York, succeeding Democratic-Republican Governor Daniel D. Tompkins, who had been elected Monroe's Vice President. At first, Van Buren supported Governor Clinton's policies, but he soon came into disagreement with the Governor on questions of public patronage. On July 7, 1819, Attorney General Van Buren was replaced by Federalist Thomas J. Oakley. Slightly shaded folds. Lightly foxed in blank areas. Docket on verso lightly shows through. Overall, fine condition.
