Nelson Rockefeller Letter Signed as Governor of New York

Nelson Rockefeller was an American businessman and politician who belonged to the famous, wealthy Rockefeller family. Rockefeller served as both the Governor of New York from 1959-1973 and the Vice President of the United States under President Gerald Ford. Rockefeller also served various positions on administration boards for Presidents Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, and Dwight Eisenhower. Rockefeller was a politically moderate, and as a Republican in his era that was incredibly rare. In fact, he was so unique compared to his extremely conservative Republican colleagues that other moderate Republicans inherited the name “Rockefeller Republicans.” During his time as Governor of New York, Rockefeller greatly expanded the State University of New York system and was one of the first politicians to address environmental protection. Rockefeller was personally selected by President Gerald Ford to be the Vice President following the Watergate scandal. Despite Gerald Ford appearing on the Republican ballot again in 1976, Rockefeller did not join him as he decided to make his retirement. Rockefeller’s greatest achievement in the field of business was forming the International Basic Economy Corporation in 1947. This piece is a typed letter from the State of New York Executive Chamber signed by Nelson Rockefeller as acting Governor of New York. The letter nominates one Louis Pelowski for the Workmen’s Compensation Board because of a death of one of the members. The piece is dated January 11, 1962.

NY State Secretary Christopher Morgan Writes About Whig Politics & Henry Clay For President

1842, New York. ALS. 1 page. CHRISTOPHER MORGAN (1808-1877). Morgan was admitted to the bar and set up practice in Aurora. He was elected as a Whig candidate to the House of Representatives of the 26th US Congress and reelected for a second term, serving from 1839-1843. He was defeated for reelection in 1842. He moved to Auburn, NY in 1843 and set up practice there. Christopher served as New York Secretary of State 1847-1851 and as Superintendent of New York Public Schools 1848-1852. He was elected Mayor of Auburn in 1860 and 1862. He also served as a trustee of the State Lunatic Asylum in Utica.For a zealous devotion to Whig principles and an earnest endeavor to promote the interests of the country, by the adoption of wise and beneficial measures, the Whig members of Congress, desire no higher reward than the approbation of their Whig constituency.

“The violated pleges and broken promises of a perfidious President have ( ) the accomplishment of most of the great measures which were expected on the occasion of the Whigs to power.”

“Though disappointed, the Whigs are not discouraged. They are ready for another contest. Their standard is borne by one against whom ( ) has never dared to breath a suspicion of perfidy. Our great statesman (for Kentucky has no right to claim as exclusively her wone, the common property of the Union) Henry Clay, is now the only candidat of the Whig party for the Presidency and I doubt not that he will be elected by a greater majority of votes than was given to the lamented harrison. If other states falter, New York is pledged to sustain him.”

“The duties of a political convass in my own district prevent an acceptance of your kind and flattering invitation.”

A fine letter with choice political content. Excellent condition
