Thomas Hart Benton SIGNED 1851 ALS MISSOURI Senator
0001-01-01 00:00:00 - Autograph Letter Signed. Washington, D.C. May 11, 1851. On vacation after being beaten in the election of 1851, Benton writes in regards to financial matters and payments owed to him by a Mr. Vance. Benton served as a Senator of Missouri from August 10, 1821 to March 3, 1851. Minor wear at the edges, fold marks & toning. SCARCE! Great condition for its age! Letter reads: Dear Sir, I have been traveling in the West for near two months past, and the letters which came to the post office here, contrary to my intentions, were put on their travels after me, and I have never over-taken one. In this way, I account for not having heard from you in answer to the last letter I wrote you from Washington City, or one from Louisville--both were the end of March. Among other things, both dated to two payments, and the other a proposition to make an advance on the next note of $4000. Not hearing from you, I write this letter to make inquiries, and if any thing was received from Mr. Vance, to let me know how much, and how remitted, and if in a draft, to send me a duplicate, as a second of a bill of exchange, and also what may have passed in relation to the advance of the next note. Yours truly, Thomas H. Benton. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
