WAYNE MACVEAGH
The Attorney General sends a letter to an associate supplying "proof", saying he will not be needing it after
Autograph letter signed: "Wayne MacVeagh", in black ink, 5¼x8½. January 15, 1904. Washington, D.C. In full: "My dear Sir: Herein proof as requested [items not included] - I'll not need to see it again - Sincerely Yours". Wayne Mac Veagh (1833-1917), a Union major in the Civil War, entered Republican politics in Pennsylvania, openly opposing his father-in-law, former Lincoln Cabinet member Simon Cameron. Despite this feud, or perhaps because of it, he was dispatched by President Grant as US Ambassador to the Ottoman Empire (1870-1871). He headed the Mac Veagh Commission to Louisiana in 1877, successfully resolving a dispute between two rival state governments there and allowing the withdrawal of federal troops. He served as US Attorney General under President Garfield (1881), but resigned after Garfield's death. He supported Democrat Grover Cleveland for President in 1892, and was rewarded with the Ambassadorship in Italy (1893-1897). His brother, Franklin Mac Veagh, was Secretary of the Treasury under President Taft. Multiple folds. Toned. Corners slightly worn. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
