1849 -elisha Whittlesey- Washington Monument Us Navy Manuscript Letter

You are offerding on an early "Washington National Monument Office" correspondence letter. This is dated August 23, 1849 and was sent by Elisha Whittlesey, General Agent of the Monument, to Commodore G.W. Storer, Commander in Chief, US Squadron Brazil. This is hand-signed by Whittlesey. This measures approx. 8" x 10", comes from the archive of US Navy Admiral George Washington Storer and is an original. This has Great content, in which Whittlesey asks Storer to solicit donations to the monument from his sailors. Elisha Whittlesey (1783-1863) served as military and private secretary to Gen. William Henry Harrison and as brigade major in the Army of the Northwest in the War of 1812. He was elected to Congress, as an Anti-Masonic and Whig candidate and served from March 4, 1823, to July 9, 1838, when he resigned. He was one of the founders of the Whig Party. He was Sixth Auditor of the Treasury from March 18, 1841 to December 18, 1843, when he resigned and resumed the practice of law in Canfield, Ohio. He was appointed general agent of the Washington Monument Association in 1847. He was appointed by President Zachary Taylor as First Comptroller of the Treasury and served from May 31, 1849 to March 26, 1857, when he was removed by President James Buchanan. He was reappointed by President Abraham Lincoln April 10, 1861, and served until his death in Washington, D.C., January 7, 1863. Admiral George Washington Storer (1789-1864) served a long career - nearly fifty-five years - in the US Navy, commanding such ships as the USS Constellation and USS Brandywine.
