John Langdon (1741-1819)

John Langdon was a merchant and politician. He was speaker in the New Hampshire legislature in 1775 and again from 1777 to 1781. In 1784 he was a state senator from New Hampshire and in the following year was first president of the state. In 1788 he served another term as state president, resigning in 1789 to enter the U.S. Senate, where he served two terms. He was a friend of Washington and in 1801 President Jefferson offered him the secretaryship of the Navy, which he declined. This is probably made from a painting.
