Early letter from the Tennessee congressman and future president
Description                           Estimate: $1,400+          

ALS, one page, lightly-lined, 7.75 x 9.75, May 22, 1850. Written from the House of Representatives, a letter to William M. Lowry, in full: "Since writing to you before Mr. Jno. Bell at the instance of Wm. D. Williams has made a move for your expulsion from office—Warren the 2nd assistant this moment informed me of the fact, and informed me that nothing would be done till the P. M. General had an interview with me on the subject, which will be in the morning—I intend to have Bell present if possible. The P. M. G. does not in my opinion desire to make the removal—I will defeat them if possible and prevent the removal at all, but if they determine to make one at all hazzards, I will try and defeat [David G.] Vance—If the thing is done Bell will be the responsible man. I will write you at any move that is made." In very good to fine condition, with small tears and paper loss along edges. The earliest handwritten Johnson letter we've offered. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
