Description: 4 pages (front and back) with each two-page spread measuring 10 x 16 inches, marked "Private," Washington, D.C., April 12, 1872. Rare letter by the American politician and negotiator to the former Confederate States of America Treasurer Tyler, in preparation for Richardson's successful trip to Geneva to obtain damages from Great Britain, letting Tyler know of a Judgeship opportunity available to him by the means of Richardson's resignation, in part: "...In any article that is written in the newspaper perhaps it will be well to state the fact of the immediate cause of my resignation, the desire of [Secretary of the Treasury] Boutwell to have me manage the refunding of the national debt after my successful operation of the hundred million negotiation in London...Now I hope you will be my successor and you must attend to it immediately and persistently..." It has long been speculated that the job opportunity and Tyler's assistance to the government were linked, and crucial to the successful outcome of the Alabama Claims Commission.

Let me take a moment to let you know how pleased I am not only with your timeliness and help, but also your honesty and commitment to your customers. As an instructor at Duquesne University, I am always telling my students about responsibility and, lately, some of the book dealers have given me unnecessary difficulties... I am very pleased with the service I received from your company and will inform my fellow faculty members that they can look forward to professional service from your book shop. Again many thanks and I look forward to future dealings with your company. - Tom W.
