This is a Presidential Pardon signed by Rutherford B. Hayes on behalf of Milton G. Abbott, pardoning him of his conviction for “devising a scheme or artifice to defraud by means of the mails” (mail fraud) on August 2nd, 1880. Written in beautiful handwriting, this exquisitely preserved document explains how Abbott was charged a $500 dollar fine and had served 7 months of his 10-month sentence in the Eastern Penitentiary in Philadelphia when he was pardoned:
“…And whereas, he was never before charged…with violation of law, but always was of good repute and engaged in legitimate business; and whereas, he has served seven-tenths of the said term, and is unable to pay said fine and costs; and whereas, he is a young man, with a wife and child dependent upon his daily exertions for support; Now, therefore, be it known, that I, Rutherford B. Hayes, President of the United States of America… do hereby grant to the said Milton G. Abbott, a full and unconditional pardon…”
This document is in excellent condition and guaranteed to be original and authentic. This is a great opportunity to own a 140-year old museum-quality document signed by our nation’s nineteenth president.
