Anderson of the District of Columbia as Consul of the United States at Grenoble, France. JOHN SHERMAN became McKINLEY's Secretary of State on March 5, 1897.

Lightly creased with folds, horizontal fold touches Sherman's signature. 3½-inch tape repair at blank mid-horizontal fold on verso, no show through.
