Autographed Letter Signed

Hyde Park: 1872.

4 pages (front and back), each two-page spread measuring 8.25 x 10.5 inches, Hyde Park, New York, February 10, 1872. Written in mock indignation to a friend acting as a broker in a small business arrangement, in part:
"...I am sorry to say I didn't think too much of your business capacity as I did before I received your note of yesterday...I cannot make erasures in my check book and you must either consent to accept the check or I shall spend it for you and perhaps get something that you would not like at all..." Slight tears along the natural folds; chip in the right margin of the third page. Very good(-) condition.

New York Congressman and judge; President Theodore Roosevelt's great uncle and distant cousin of F.D.R.
