MADISON, James (1751-1836), 4th President of the United States (1809-1817) a primary mover behind the Constitutional Convention of 1787, Madison imprinted many of his ideas on the final document and has been called the Father of the Constitution. Partly-printed document signed "James Madison" as President, on vellum, 10½ x 16", Washington, May 10, 1815. Countersigned by Acting Secretary of War Alexander J. Dallas ("A.J. Dallas") who was Madison's Secretary of the Treasury (Oct. 6, 1814 to Oct. 21, 1816), but from March 2, 1815 to August 1, 1815 also served as Acting Secretary of War, and for a time that year, was also Acting Secretary of State. Less than three months after the War of 1812 officially ended (Feb. 18, 1815), President Madison appoints Charles K. Gardner "Assistant adjutant general with the brevet rank of Major…." The manuscript writing on the vellum is light, the date being barely legible, and there is overall age toning and light soiling; the seal has minor paper loss at right border but is otherwise intact. Madison's signature is of medium boldness.”
