Description  

Second wife of John Tyler (1820–1889) who he married during his term as president. ALS signed “Julia Gardner Tyler,” three pages on two adjoining sheets, 4.5 x 6.75, April 18, 1882. Letter to Colonel Cunningham, in full: "Thanks for your kind letters—& the Professor writes—how much he too is indebted to you—He now appreciates what I have so much longer known—your deep interest in his Father. I have many notes of pleasure at thy good fortune but none sincerer I know than the words traced by your 'facile pen'—Yes, the late action of Congress adds much to my means for comfort & enjoyment, at least it will when it becomes available—I think the 'Times' was a little far-fetched in its premises & conclusions! It may call me advanced but it need not issue direct falsehoods mistakes that I live in New York, or have ever received a penny worth of 'support from kind & generous friends'—Fortunately for me my inheritance was not all demolished—& have had many blessings in a legitimate way to be thankful for—but no contributions, until Congress thought proper to render its Presidential Widows more easy in circumstances—which was a credit to its good judgment, as well as to its head & heart—Your letters are always most welcome to me & I hope you are in the enjoyment of good health." In fine condition, with trivial toning. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
