Dear Cousin,We share our first American ancestor (Aquila Chase who emigrated from Cornwall England to Newburyport, MA. in 1639); our birthdays (Jan. 13th); and, our shared love for the great state of Ohio and our United States of America. You are a "Crown of Ohio's Jewels" (Grant, Garfield, Sherman, Sheridan, Stanton and yourself-Salmon Portland Chase)statue on our statehouse grounds where you were Ohio's first governor (1856-1860) to occupy our present-day 'Greek Revival-era' statehouse. As U.S, Secretary of Treas., you financed the Union war effort, and as U.S. Supreme Ct. Chief Justice, you presided over an impeachment of a sitting U.S. president (saving us from a national tragedy), and the passage of U.S. Constitutional Amendments 13, 14, and 15 during 'Reconstruction'. You were known as "the Attorney General for runaway slaves" pro-bono during your early years in Cincinnati where you condensed Ohio's voluminous statutes while personally losing 3 wives and four daughters before your rise to the national political stage. You would have been an outstanding U.S. president which eluded your grasp from 1856 until your death at NYC in 1873. You are Ohio's greatest adopted son, a true gentleman, and despite what your political enemies believed and said about you, you were a man worthy of great trust bestowed upon you by President Lincoln evidenced by his appointments of your offices. You gave us the monetary words on our American fiat and specie "In God We Trust" a testimony to your great legacy! May God give you a well-earned rest my cousin Salmon, and may He forever continue to bless our beloved United States of America!
