MORGAN DIX Letter referencing his father's brief (but famous) tenure as Secretary of War during the James Buchanan Presidency Autograph Letter signed: "Morgan Dix", 1 page, 5x8. Laurence, Queen's County, New York, August 17, 1885. To Alonzo Page Walton, in full: "In reply to your letter of the 3rd inst., which reached me today, I have to inform you, that my father, General Dix, was Secretary of the Treasury during the closing weeks of President Buchanan's administration; and that he was succeeded in that office by the Hon. Salmon P. Chase of Ohio, who was appointed Secretary of the Treasury by President Lincoln on or about March 4, 1861. Very truly yours. Morgan Dix (1827-1908), was an Episcopal minister and theologian. He published many books on the Bible and other aspects of Christianity, as well as collections of his sermons. He was associated with New York's Trinity Church for over 50 years. His father, Major General John Adams Dix (1798-1879) earned hero status in the North when, as Treasury Secretary in 1860, he ordered Treasury agents to "shoot on sight" anyone attempting to take down a US flag. A Democratic U.S. Senator before the war and a Republican Governor of New York after it, he was a Major General during the Civil War, giving his name to Fort Dix. Adhesive residue at top edge. Lightly creased and toned around edges. Corners creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
