Item Details
Description
ALS signed “A. Burr,” one page, 7.75 x 9.5, July 20, 1807. Addressed from New York, a handwritten letter to Ephraim Kirby of Litchfield, Connecticut, in full: “You must pardon me, my dear Sir, for writing little & cautiously for your house taught me to distrust your post office. When your commission can have lain so long or rather why it has been so long witholden, I cannot conceive. It is several weeks since I knew of this and one other new appointment in your State; yet I did feel myself authorised to communicate the information. I am much rejoiced to find that you have at length received your commission. I wrote Edwards on the subject of the delegation, a letter which he will not understand until he shall hear of your appointment. Still I advised that the project be carried into execution & offered to contribute. In all my communications, I have bestowed as much attention to your State as to this—probably even more—I am always happy in being made the instrument to promote good principles or good measures; but I have not thought it discreet to write to you, or even to Edward, either what I have done or what I have heard or expected. I have presumed that you and our common friends would excuse my silence & would believe that I was not inattentive to their concerns.” Burr has addressed the adjacent mailing panel and added his franking signature to the upper right, “A. Burr.” Nicely matted and framed unfolded to an overall size of 21.25 x 15.25. In fine condition, with multiple intersecting folds, and a thin old mounting strip along the hinge.
