Autograph endorsement as president, signed “A. Lincoln,” on a 6.5 x 3.25 address overleaf attached to a letter written by Thomas Jacks requesting the release of two prisoners, March 1, 1865. In part: “I would most respectfully request that you release from prison upon their taking the Oath of Allegiance—W. M. Johnson—Alton, Ills—and Monroe Thomas—Fort Delaware. I am not personally acquainted with either of these prisoners but they are endorsed to me by gentlemen of high respectability. They are both Conscripts—poor men with families.” The endorsement, written in the hand of Lincoln’s secretary John Hay, in full: “Let W. M. Johnson & Monroe Thomas, Prisoners of War, be discharged on taking the oath of Dec. 8, 1863.” In fine condition, with the integral leaf trimmed to leave just Lincoln’s endorsement.
