In full: "Getting your civilities to him or assistance in case of necessity while he continues in France will much oblige me your sincere friend". In 1801, Robert Fulton (1765-1815, born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania) was commissioned by Robert R. Livingston, U.S. Minister to France, to build a steamboat. After successful experiments on the Seine in France, Fulton returned to the United States and succeeded in building the first commercially successful steamboat. This boat, with the final name Clermont, steamed from New York to Albany and back between August 17 and 22, 1807. Thereafter, Fulton designed 17 steamboats, a torpedo boat and a ferry. Fulton's signature is scarce in any form! Irregularly cut edges. Left edge frayed. Toned at lower right edge. Multiple mailing folds. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
