CLAY, HENRY
HENRY CLAY An autograph letter, on embossed stationery, signed H. Clay, Washington, December 26, 1859, by the great American statesman from Kentucky, Presidential candidate and author of the Compromise of 1820. To A. H. Smith, "I duly received your letter requesting my aid in procuring for your son in law the appointment of Major, in the new Regiments of mounted men, should they be authorized by Congress. No law to that effect has yet passed. But should it be, I shall be very happy to afford any assistance I can towards the accomplishment of your wishes." "You know well how these things are done here, and of course how important it is to bring all the influences you can in the furtherance of your wishes." 1 page, 4to. [ref:6630]

CLAY, HENRY
HENRY CLAY An autograph letter signed H. Clay, New Orleans, January 15, 1843, by the Southern statesman, orator and politician. To longtime political friend and ally, and fellow Kentuckian, J. J. Crittenden in Washington, DC. Crittenden, at this time, was a U.S. Senator for Kentucky having succeeded Clay in that position. Here, Clay asks Crittenden to obtain a record of an 1841 Supreme Court decision on a case, Groves v. Slaughter. "My dear Sir," "I would be very much obliged to you, if you would obtain for me, with as little delay as possible, and transmit it to me by mail to this place, a Copy of the opinion of the Judges of the S. Court in the case of Slaughter (the Mississippi Slave case) decided Term before the last, certified in the form to be used as evidence in a Court of Justice. Our friend Peters perhaps could assist you in procuring it, if the opinions are not recorded." "Your friend, H. Clay." 1 page, 4to. Integral attached leaf bears a three-line autograph address plus some "New Orleans" and "Free" postal marks. There is minor paper residue from previous framing, well away from text, signature and address. Groves v. Slaughter dealt with the purchase of slaves in Mississippi. The purchaser argued he did not owe the slave-trader for the transaction because a State law passed in 1832 forbid the importation of slaves for in-state sale after a certain date. The issue dealt with Federal rights to regulate interstate commerce and states' rights to constitutionally regulate the slave trade. In a split opinion, the Court argued, in Serpentine fashion, that the individual states held the power of regulation of such commerce. Chief Justice Taney concurred in an opinion that foretold the arguments offered in the notorious Dred Scott decision of 1857. A Slave owner himself, Clay opposed the expansion of Slavery to the Federal territories and new States that entered the Union. From the Compromise of 1820 to his challenging speech to the Senate in 1850, he fought the losing fight to keep an impossible situation, Slavery, from rending the U.S. [ref:5906]
