BUCHANAN, JAMES. 1791-1868.
Autograph Letter Signed ("James Buchanan"), 1 p, 4to (conjoining address leaf), Lancaster, July 12, 1843, to Robert Winebrenner & Co. of Philadelphia, with Buchanan’s franking signature ("free James Buchanan") on address leaf, some ink stains in lower blank area of letter, address leaf with repaired seal hole and tipped at all edges to album leaf.

Buchanan orders a new coat, one that isn’t so tight: "I would thank you to send me a black cloth coat. The last one you made for me was a little too tight around the body. If it had been a very little larger throughout it would have pleased me better, although it might not have been so fashionable...."
Provenance: The Presidential Autograph Collection of Alfred L. Baker.
