Abraham Lincoln note signed, concerning Native American affairs.

In Full:  “Commissioner of Indian Affairs, please see the bearer of this, Mr. Pierce, who is well vouched to me, and talk with him and ascertain if there // is any service in the Indian department, to which you can put him, with advantage to the public.”

“Pierce has not been identified, but may have been John Pierce of Colorado, nominated surveyor general of Colorado and Utah on March 10 and confirmed by the Senate on March 13, 1863.”—CW Vol. 5, pg 485.

Excellent; bold, clear ink writing with just a hint of Lincoln’s busy large hands brushing a couple of still wet words.
