#23 - Zachary Taylor Estimate: $4,000+

In a scarce letter as president, Taylor thanks a historian for the "volume entitled 'Historical Collections of Virginia'"

Rare LS as president, signed “Z. Taylor,” one page, 7 x 9, August 6, 1849. Letter to historian Henry Howe in New Haven, Connecticut, in full: "I have received your favor of April 12th and the accompanying volume entitled 'Historical Collections of Virginia,' which you have been as to present me. I beg you to receive my sincere thanks for this interesting and acceptable work & my best wishes for your health and happiness." Matted and framed with a portrait to an overall size of 16.75 x 13.75. In fine condition. Given his short 16-month tenure in the White House, presidential autographs by Taylor are especially scarce.
