Abraham Baldwin autograph letter signed with rare content on the impeachment trial of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Chase. Datelined Washington, 8 January 1805 (Baldwin mid-dates the year as 1804), Baldwin writes to his brother Henry while serving as U.S. Senator from Georgia. In part, ''...The day appointed for the trial of the impeachment is the fourth of Feby that is also the day of putting in his answer which he swears he was not prepared to do on the former day. It is possible his answer may require the managers to ask further time though I believe it is not expected...Abr Baldwin''. On 1 March 1805 the U.S. Senate voted to acquit Chase of impeachment (after the House voted for impeachment), thereby deeply establishing the independence of Supreme Court Justices. Single page letter measures 7.75'' x 13''. Closed tear at right edge, partially affecting signature. Overall very good condition.
