Judah P. Benjamin.
ALS, 5-1/2pp., dated Oct. 7, 1867 from London, to Genl. Breckenridge, being further discussion of Mr. Henry Lafore's claims (see previous lot), with Benjamin's suggestion that Breckenridge "be preserved from all responsibility whether moral or pecuniary,"
by writing a letter to Leech, Harrison & Forwood of Liverpool, with an enclosed draft of the said letter penned by Benjamin: Mr. Benjamin now writes me that he is satisfied that Mr. Henry Lafore is justly and legally entitled to claim thse proceeds in your hands, and I of course at once abandon all claim to them...and make no objection whatever to you paying the proceeds to Mr. Lafore,"
etc. Very Fine
