Dated “Executive Office [over crossed-out “Department of State”], Richmond, Jan. 18, 1865 / To the Secretary of the Treasury.”

Pre-printed government form, 9.5 x 7. 625”, on blue, lined paper. Text:

“Please cause a warrant for the sum of fifteen hundred dollars in gold for ‘Necessities and Exigencies under laws passed or which may be passed” To be issued in favor of “Hon. Judah P. Benjamin, Secretary of State and charged to him on the books of the Treasury.” Signed, “Jefferson Davis/ President C.S.A.” Appropriation for “Necessities and Exigencies $1500”.

Document is mounted on white card paper, and torn evenly, laterally at the center. Chipped round the upper edges. While remaining completely and cleanly legible. Deserves archival conservation.

An intriguing document inviting further research. For what purpose would President Davis, in January 1865, direct his Department of Treasury to pay $1500 in gold to Secretary of State Judah P. Benjamin? Excellent CSA/ Jefferson Davis/ Judah Benjamin collectible. In protective sleeve.  [JP]
