Autograph Note Signed. Vernon Mansfield DAVIS.

Autograph Note Signed.

One of the best known attorneys in late 19th century New York City was this powerhouse district attorney, who was named to the New York Supreme Court in 1902. Item #43061

ANS, 1p, heavy stock 3" X 1½", n.p., n.y. Fine. On his elegant imprinted "Mr. Vernon Mansfield Davis" calling card, Davis crosses out the "Mr." and boldly pens "Mrs. Davis joins me / in thanks and / appreciation of good / wishes -- Sincerely / Vernon M. Davis." Also present is the tiny 3¼" X 2½" mailing envelope addressed in Davis's hand to Mr. and Mrs. John Barker and bearung 2-cent postage stamp. Very good. A black-bordered mourning envelope, undated but likely a condolence acknowledgment either for the death of Davis's mother in 1912 or his father in 1913. Accompanied by a second, pristine, unsigned calling card. Unusual!

Price: $50.00
