LS as president, signed “Z. Taylor,” one page, 8 x 10, March 27, 1849. Letter to Elias C. Page, in full: "Your friendly letter of the 22'd ultimo, and the accompanying present of a handsome pair of boots of your own manufacture, have been duly received. Though I feel much delicacy in receiving in my present position such marks of consideration at the hands of my friends, my embarrassment is greatly relieved in your case by the circumstances under which your present is offered, and by the elevated spirit which your letter breathes; and it is therefore cordially and gratefully accepted. With my best thanks for your useful gift, and my wishes for your health & success." In fine condition, with a bit of light creasing. Accompanied by the original letter from Page. A desirable letter signed less than a month into his presidency.
