In full: "A friend asks me to find him a pair of horses, or two single ones to match, say 15½ hands, of fair style, to drive, able to do three minutes at least. Can you out of your enviable knowledge tell me where they are? I do not wish to bother you, but to enquire. Thanking you in advance."

In 1882, appointed by President Arthur to the Supreme Court and confirmed by the Senate, Conkling declined to accept. Lightly creased. Horizontal fold touches the "onk" in Conkling. Fine condition.
