COBB, Thomas Howell (1815-1868) was an American political figure. A southern Democrat, Cobb was a five-term member of the United States House of Representatives and Speaker of the House from 1849 to 1851. He also served as a Secretary of Treasury under President James Buchanan (1857–1860) and the 40th Governor of Georgia (1851–1853). He is, however, probably best known as one of the founders of the Confederacy, having served as the President of the Provisional Congress of the Confederate States, in which delegates of the Southern slave states which had declared that they had seceded from the United States created the Confederate States. Cobb served for two weeks between the foundation of the Confederacy and the election of Jefferson Davis as its first President. This made him, as the Speaker of the Congress, provisional Head of State at this time. Signature “Howell Cobb” likely clipped from a free franked cover.
