Sir James Graham (1792-1861) Written And Signed Letter With Envelope, Dated 1855 For Sale

Sir James Graham (1792-1861) Written And Signed Letter With Envelope, Dated 1855

Sir James Graham (1792-1861) Written and Signed Letter with Envelope, dated 1855
British statesman. Member of Parliament for Hull, Home Secretary under Peel, First Lord of the Admiralty under both Earl Grey and Lord of the Admiralty. Letter written and signed by Graham to Miss Blumin promising to relay good wishes to Commander Wake. Dated February 22, 1855 from the Admiralty, only days before he resigned as First Lord of the Admiralty in opposition to the Crimean War. With the original envelope which is addressed and signed by Graham, making a total of two signatures. Starting price at $95.00

Graham was the M.P. for Hull (1818-20), Carlisle (1826-29), Cumberland East (1830-37), Pembroke (1838-41), Dorchester (1841-47), Ripon (1847-52) and Carlisle (1852-61). He was appointed as First Lord of the Admiralty in Earl Grey's government in 1830, but resigned in 1834 due to his opposition to the proposed reform of the Irish Church. The following year he moved from the Whig to the Conservative benches, although his relationships with more hard-line Conservative M.P.s were often difficult. Graham was brought back into government by Peel as Secretary of State for the Home Department between 1841 and 1846. He was one of the Conservative Peelite M.P.s who supported the Russell government of 1846. In 1852 he stood for election in Carlisle as a Liberal. He once again served as First Lord of the Admiralty, in Aberdeen's coalition government of 1852-1855. He held no further office after that time, but remained a prominent parliamentarian until his death.
