Check signed: "Robert T. Lincoln", 1p, 8¼x31/4. Chicago, 1921 April 8. Personal check drawn on the Continental and Commercial National Bank of Chicago, payable to "The Factory Point National Bank" for $1000. Robert Todd Lincoln (1843-1926), the eldest and only surviving son of President Abraham Lincoln, was Secretary of War in Garfield's Cabinet (1881-1885) and U.S. Minister to Great Britain from 1889-1893. In 1897, upon the death of George Pullman, Lincoln, who had moved to Chicago in May 1865, the month after his father's assassination, became acting President of Pullman's company. He served as permanent President from 1901-1911 and Chairman of the Board from 1911-1922. Lincoln was present at three presidential assassinations (those of his father, and of Garfield and McKinley). He made his last public appearance on May 30, 1922 at the dedication of the Lincoln Memorial and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. Corners rounded. Bank stamps throughout. Cancellation holes not near signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
