Descripción

Joseph Reed Ingersoll was the son of Jared Ingersoll, a delegate to the Continental Congress and signer of the U.S. Constitution. Joseph was an attorney, a Congressman from Pennsylvania, and President of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania.In 1852, President Millard Fillmore appointed him to be Ambassador to Great Britain and gave him authority to negotiate the Convention of 1853, which aimed at finally settling claims between the two countries stemming from the War of 1812. The two negotiators were Ingersoll and his British Counterpart, Lord John Russell. In August of 1852, as Ingersoll headed overseas, Millard Fillmore wrote Queen Victoria, informing her of America's new representative at the Court of St. James. Document Signed, Washington, August 31, 1852, authorizing the Secretary of State to "affix the seal of the United States to the envelope of a letter addressed to Her Majesty Victoria (Mr. Ingersoll's credence)."Once Ingersoll had successfully negotiated the 1853 Convention, he returned home to Pennsylvania and was replaced by the next American Ambassador in London, James Buchanan.
