Exceptionally bold ALS as president, one page, 7.25 x 8.25, May 4, 1831. In full: “You will take charge of the 2’d Auditors Office and discharge the duties thereof with the return of the 2’d Auditor who will be absent, from the seat of government, for a short time.” In fine condition. This letter comes shortly after one of the first major court cases resulting from the Indian removal policies advanced by Jackson’s administration. Beginning in 1830, the Cherokee Nation sought a federal injunction against state laws of Georgia that extended into their tribal lands. The Cherokee wanted to bring the lawsuit as a sovereign nation, but on March 18, 1831, the Supreme Court determined that it was a ‘domestic dependent nation’ and could not be considered a foreign state. This allowed the Indian Removal Act to stay in place, and the tragic forced relocation of Native Americans—now known as the ‘Trail of Tears’—commenced in the fall of 1831. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
