New York: E. Conrad  1 page, folio (36 ½ x 29 ½in.), eagle vignette at top center. In original frame. JACKSON’S BOLD DEFENSE OF THE UNION This 10 December 1832 Proclamation is Jackson’s answer to the 19 November 1832 convention in Charleston, SC, which sought to declare the federal tariffs of 1828 and 1832 null and void within the State. Any attempts to enforce the tariff, they warned, would result in South Carolina seceding from the Union. Jackson denounces the resolutions as “subversive of the Constitution” and warns the South Carolinians “of the consequences that must result!” The “undivided support of your government depends upon this great question, whether your sacred Union will be preserved!” -- JACKSON, Andrew. Autograph endorsement signed three times (“Andrew Jackson”), as Judge of the Superior Court, 16 September 1800. 3 pages, folio. An early Jackson signature as judge. Jackson signs this legal pleading in the lawsuit between John Jackson and Thomas Berry. He endorses the document twice, verifying the signatures of the parties. And beneath that he writes and signs, “Let writs of supersedes and certiorari issue agreeable to the prayer of the petitioner.” A rare example from Jackson’s judicial career, and an equally rare triple signature.
-- JACKSON, Andrew. Letter signed (“Andrew Jackson”), as President, to John R. Rhinelander, et al., Washington, 23 February 1833. 3 pages, 4to., folds repaired (catching portions of a few words). President Jackson thanks Rhinelander and his fellow officers of the “republican ward committee of the sixth ward of the city of New York,” for their resolution “approving the sentiments contained in my proclamation of the 10th December last and directing a satin copy of it to be presented to me.” The Proclamation he issued was a fiery rejection of South Carolina’s nullification of the Tariff. -- JACKSON, Andrew.
