Kate Chase, daughter of Salmon Portland Chase. The exchange between her and Mary Todd Lincoln took place March 6, 1861 at the first White House Levee. Mrs. Lincoln: “I shall be glad to see you any time, Miss Chase.” Miss Chase: “Mrs. Lincoln, I shall be glad to have you call on me at any time.” The relationship between the two went downhill from there.

Kate Chase and Mary Woodbury qualify as daughters of prominent figures who served as Governor, Senator, Cabinet Member, and Justice of the Supreme Court. Of the two, Kate Chase seems to have had a more well-established reputation as a hostess in Washington society, so she is my answer.
