WILLIAM WINDOM
As US Senator, he orders a shipment of coal and kindling.
Autograph Letter signed: "Wm. Windom" as US Senator, 1 page, 5x7. Washington, D.C., 1879 March 17. On letterhead of the Senate Appropriations Committee to "Messers Dickson and King", in full: "Please send me two tons of grate coal such as [?] and ¼ cord of kindling wood and oblige. Yours truly". William Windom (1827-1891) was Secretary of the Treasury under Presidents Garfield and Arthur from March 7, 1881 to October 26, 1881 and under Benjamin Harrison from 1889 to his death in 1891. He also represented Minnesota in the House (1859-1869) and the U.S. Senate (1870-1871, 1871-1881, 1881-1883). After an unsuccessful bid for reelection in 1882, Windom moved to New York to practice law. Windom was an advocate of bimetallism, a currency backed by both gold and silver, a position his Republican Party would soon repudiate in favor of strict adherence to a gold standard, but his picture appears on $2.00 silver certificates. He was the great, great grandfather of actor William Windom. Hole in center of page. Corners slightly worn. Light surface creases. Toned. Normal mailing folds. Otherwise, fine condition.
