President Fillmore appeals to Secretary of State Daniel Webster

ALS as president, one page, 8 x 9.75, September 11, 1851. Letter to Daniel Webster, in part: "I enclose the application of Julius C. Kretschmar for the appointment of consul at Palermo. You will recollect that this gentleman was recently recalled from Nassau. He says there are no papers on file against him. I am sure there was some complaint but I do not recollect the particulars. I believe you examined it more than I did. But he has been here, and gentlemanly in his appearance, and in delicate health…My sympathies are excited for him." Impressively cloth-matted and framed with two engravings to an overall size of 32 x 20.75. In fine condition.
