Columbus Delano Cout Document Signed Prosecuting Gamblers

1p, measuring 7.25" x 6.75" (sight), Knox County, Ohio, dated October 1838. A legal document from the Court of Common Pleas, signed "C Delano", involving a case of four men accused of illegal gambling. Reading in part:

"…find that Nathan Headington, Jacob Wolford, Andrew Walker & Smith Marshall on the first day of September…did play at a certain game of cards called Loo for a sum of six and one fourth cents a game contrary to the form of the stature in such cases made and provided and against the peace and dignity of the state of Ohio…" Matted with an article from "Harper Weekly" issue dated November 13, 1875, titled "The Charges Against Secretary Delano of the Interior Department: Another 'Respectable' Failure." The display is matted so that the docketing on the verso of the legal document is visible, measuring 24" x 20" overall. The document has flattened folds, with light toning and foxing. Small separation tear at the upper right fold. Boldly signed.

Columbus Delano (1809-1896) was a lawyer banker, and statesman from Ohio. As part of the prominent Delano family, he no doubt made a name for himself and was elected a Congressman for Ohio. He served as a prosecuting attorney for Knox County from 1834 to 1839. After the Civil War, Delano strongly supported Radical Reconstruction and was appointed by President Grant as Secretary of the Interior.

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
