FILLMORE, MILLARD. 1800-1874.
Autograph Letter Signed ("Fillmore") as President, 1 p, 4to, Washington, November 27, 1850, to Mrs Brooks, tipped at all edges to album leaf.

Bantering, affectionate letter about the arrival of a splendid coach and asking for the livery that goes with it. In full: "My Dear Mrs Brooks, I have really been so busy in preparing for Congress that I have neglected, not to say forgotten every thing else. I was awakened from this abstraction today by the reception from some unknown gentlemen of the most splendid coach I have ever seen. The first thought was that it should be shown upon the Avenue, but alas, the livery coats are not here, and the carriage must not appear till all is complete. I think we will omit the pants for the present, and if you can send the coats by express you will greatly oblige your friend / Fillmore / must closing! adieu!"
Provenance: The Presidential Autograph Collection of Alfred L. Baker.
