ALS, one page both sides, 7.25 x 9, August 26, 1853. Letter, written as Ambassador to England, to W. William Richmond. In full: “On my arrival in the city a few days ago I received your favor of the 11th Instant. I very much regret that I cannot afford you any assistance in your application to be appointed Consul of the United States at Antwerp. Indeed, I have no doubt the place has already been filled, though I do not know the fact. You are mistaken in supposing that there have not been other applicants for the situation. I was committed in such a manner before I left the United States, that it would be improbable for me now to interfere in your favor, even if the place were still vacant.” The letter has been removably archivally sleeved in acid free Mylar. In fine condition, with intersecting folds. Accompanied by two unsigned engravings. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
