Summary
Oliver Wolcott Jr. (1760-1833) was United States Secretary of the Treasury, 1795-1800; United States Circuit Court judge for the Second Circuit, 1801-1802; and governor of Connecticut, 1817-1827. Oliver Wolcott Jr. letters and documents, 1799-1826, contain three letters written or signed by him regarding government business to Governor Jedediah Huntington of Connecticut, 1799; to Governor Isaac H. Williamson of New Jersey, 1818; and to Lieutenant Colonel George Bomford, 1823; and a signed printed circular letter to the Governor of Ohio (Jeremiah Morrow), 1825, regarding state resolutions to emancipate the slaves. A personal letter to James W. Henry at Baltimore, 1807, introduces Virgil Maxcy; and a letter to Wolcott's wife Betsy with a torn date [December 1800] tells of the close electoral vote count for Burr and Jefferson in the presidential election. Also included are signed certificates for civil and military appointments, 1817-1826; an order to his bank for Archibald Gracie, 1806; and a clipped signature.
