Fillmore expresses his gratitude for copies of his State of the Union address in a rare handwritten letter
Description                           Estimate: $2,000+          

ALS as president, one page both sides, 5 x 8, December 17, 1851. Letter to John C. Rives, in full: “Please accept my thanks for some pamphlet copies of my annual message. I should hardly have deemed this worthy of making my special acknowledgments, were it not for the beautiful style in which the printing is executed. I wish indeed that Congress would have the public documents printed in a similar manner. Please send me a copy of the Congressional Globe and Appendix for the last Session and enter my name for the current Session & Send it with the back numbers and your bill and I will remit the amount.” Affixed to a slightly larger sheet, and addressed on the reverse of the second integral page in another hand. In fine condition, with intersecting folds, and slight show-through from writing to opposing sides. Accompanied by an unsigned engraving of Fillmore bearing a facsimile signature. Provenance: The Everett Fisher Collection. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
