[VERMONT]Edward John Phelps(1822-1900) was a lawyer and diplomat from Vermont. He is notable for his service as Envoy to Court of St. James's from 1885 to 1889. In addition, Phelps was a founder of the American Bar Association, and served as its president from 1880 to 1881. President Grover Cleveland intended to appoint him as U.S. Chief Justice in 1888, but Phelps was concerned that his tenure as ambassador to the Court of St. James's in Great Britain would cause the Democratic Party to lose the support of Irish Americans, and he declined. Offered here is a 1859 Vermont Supreme Court pre-printed document, 2pp, approx. 8-/8 x 12-3/4 in. The handwriting [includes Phelps] on verso was written by Phelps. VG
