Fourth bishop and first archbishop of New York. Fondly called "Dagger John" for the cross appended before his name as well as his assertive personality.  He was known to mediate more than a few brawls among his congregants. A man of iron will and drive.


ENGRAVING:  Fine steel engraving as Archbishop of New York, measure 4"x6" with a facsimile signature on the lower white area.  Engraving by D. Appleton, NY. Very good to fine.

HUGHES, John (1797-1864)
