Levi Lincoln, Jr
Sept 19th 1837. An autograph letter signed "Levi Lincoln" and franked "Levi Lincoln MC" while he served in the House of Representatives: "I had the pleasure to receive, by the Mail, of yesterday, your Letter in reference to Mr Marstow's Appointment, and have, with Mr Atherton, waited upon the President [Van Buren] and had a communication with him on that Subjecty. He understood him to say, that he shall make the nomination of Mr Marstow, being satisfied of the preference to be given to him, over the other Candidates; and doubtless his confirmation will be had, on the first Executive Session of the Senate. In respect to Georges application, upon presenting himself to Maj Genl Macumb and the Secy of War, and having satisfied their inquiries - he was assured by each of them, that he would be appointed to the 4th Regt now on Service in Florida - and I doubt not their assurances will be realized, especially as he was directed to make himself ready for orders...The fate of the Bill, in the House, postponing the...surplus of the States, is yet uncertain. The restoration of credit on Bonds for duties - and the authority to issue Treasury notes to the amount of the...will be agreed to..." The letter had the usual folds with white paper and dark ink.
