Details

Named Person: John Lorimer Graham; John Lorimer Graham
Material Type: Document, Internet resource
Document Type: Book, Computer File, Internet Resource
All Authors / Contributors: John Lorimer Graham; M St Clair Clarke; Elisha Whittlesey
OCLC Number: 437879607
Notes: Parentheses substituted for square brackets in title transcription.
Signed: John Lorimer Graham, late post-master of New-York.
Followed by Clarke's reply, dated December 27, 1848, stating that while Graham held the position of postmaster for New York, his "very large, important and complicated accounts were rendered with a promptness and accuracy scarcely to be expected, and your monies were regularly deposited."
Pages [2-3] contain similar testimonials from two of Clarke's predecessors, Elisha Whittlesey and P.G. Washington, dated Dec. 30th and Dec. 12, 1848, respectively, concerning Graham's satisfactory performance as postmaster of New York from 1840 to 1845.
The letter from P.G. Washington, auditor of the Post-Office Dept. at the time, states that "agreeably to the terms of the act of Congress of the 14th of August last ... the amount of the suspended vouchers for your expenses in providing safer and more ample accommodations for your office ... amounting to the sum of $2,704.31 having been paid to you ... your account has, from that time, stood exactly balanced, and finally closed, on the books of this office." This settlement and subsequent correspondence was apparently in response to Graham's Appeal of John Lorimer Graham, late post-master of New-York to the comptroller of the Treasury, from decision of the auditor of the Post Office Department, rejecting from his accounts the items of expenditure for fitting up the new post-office buildings in Nassau-Street and Chatham-Square, New York, 1846.
Presumably printed early in 1849.
The American Antiquarian Society copy has embossed stamp, presumably that of the stationer.
Description: 1 online resource ([4] pages).
