JACKSON, ANDREW. 1767-1845.

President Andrew Jackson provides a letter of introduction to Reverend Schermerhorn as he departs for Europe on business for the "Reformed Church of the Netherlands." Jackson writes, "I have known him for many years, and with confidence write his virtues, on authority for the favorable notice of the good and pious of all countries." Schermerhorn would go on to be a Commissioner for Indian Affairs under Jackson, somewhat notoriously negotiating the 1836 Treaty of New Echota which provided for the removal of the Cherokees from their lands east of the Mississippi in exchange for $5 million.
