Congressman Johnson appeals to the House’s Sergeant at Arms
Description                           Estimate: $1,000+          

ALS, two pages on two adjoining sheets, 7.75 x 9.75, August 21, 1851. Written from Greeneville, Tennessee, a letter to A. J. Glossbrenner, the Sergeant at Arms of the United States House of Representatives, in part: “You will remember about the close of the last session of the last Congress I placed in your hands some documents and scraps for a certain purpose etc. Never hearing from you on them since, I have concluded that the whole affair has slipped your memory or they had been misplaced or something of the kind. Perhaps the proper conclusion should be that you accepted of them more out of respect to my feelings than any intention to make any use of them for the purpose intended by me, if so I respect the motive, but must ask the person if they are not lost or misplaced to have them returned to me by mail. It no doubt indicated vanity or weakness in me, probably both, to ask such a thing of any one or consent even for a thing of the kind to be done. Let this be as it may, it will not disturb the friendship that has heretofore existed between us on its continuance in the future. I have nothing of interest to communicate more than what you have seen in the news papers of the day.” In very good to fine condition, with a tear and paper loss to the second page. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
