Description: Item # 23. An Autograph Signed Letter From John Armstrong, Jr. dated 1808. Mr. Armstrong was a United States Senator from New York and a delegate to the Continental Congress.  President Thomas Jefferson appointed him United States Minister to France. He served in that post until 1810 (this letter was written while he was Minister), and also represented the United States at the court of Spain in 1806.  “Paris 11th of June 1809 Sir, Learning from Mr. Coles that is would be difficult to protect the present union of Congress beyond the first of August and from Capt. Ward that it wold be unsafe to count upon a  passage of shorter period of 45 days at this season I have determined to dispatch the Mentor on the 14th instant.  I heartily regret that I should have nothing to add to the contents of my dispatch of the 26th _______ ex eating two notes which I have had reason to write to Mr. Champayny and one to Mr. Deires. With very high consideration, Your, Sir, Your most obedient & very humble servant John Armstrong.” Unauthenticated. Questions. Size: 8” x 5.75” glued on a later paper.
