JOHN A. DIX (1798 - 1879). Union general during the Civil War; U.S. Secretary of the Treasury; Railroad executive. Dix was a trusted public servant and financier in the period leading up to the Civil War. He served as U.S. Secretary of the Treasury during the last three months of the Buchanan administration (Jan. - March 1861), at the insistence of the eastern money interests who knew that Dix's presence would lend stability to that faltering administration. In May 1861, Lincoln appointed Dix major general of volunteers and, as such, Dix outranked all other volunteer officers until the end of the War. After the War, Dix had a distinguished career in both diplomacy and politics, serving as Minister to France, 1866-1869, and as governor of New York, 1872-1874. 1834, New York. Document signed. 6 3/4” x 5 ¼”. Partly printed check drawn on the Cashier of the Mechanics’ and Farmers’ Bank payable to Nicholas Ayrault in the amount of $129.50. Boldly Signed by John A. Dix while serving as one of the three Commissioners of the Canal Fund.
