18th President. Partly-printed document signed “U.S. Grant” AS PRESIDENT, one page, 7.75×9.75, January 29, 1876. President Grant authorizes and directs “the Secretary of State to affix the Seal of the United States to a Warrant for the conditional pardon of H.H. Mareau.” Signed boldly at the conclusion by Grant.
Presented custom framed and matted. Very fine example – truly superb condition.
Accompanied by a small folder of papers generated from the National Archives which provide information on the pardon of H.H. Mareau whose offense was “issuing business cards in likeness of Treasury notes”.
