ALS signed “W. H. Harrison,” one page, 7.75 x 9.75, December 26, 1825. Letter to William Sly, in full: "I duly received your letter of the 30th Nov'r. I derive no greater pleasure from the performance of any duty than that which contributes to the ease & comfort of those hero's who have fought & bled for their country's liberty. I promptly attended to your request & I now enclose a printed form of a deposition which you are to make before some magistrate. Having done this return the paper to me. As soon as I receive it I will have you put on the Ohio Roll of Pensioners. You will then be enabled to draw your money in Chilicothe. You had better attend to it soon that you may receive the half yearly payment in March next." In very good to fine condition, with a small stain above the text, and professional backing and silking to the reverse. A moving sentiment from the esteemed early American military leader, who would leverage his status as a war hero in his successful 1840 campaign for the presidency.
