0.00

Item #SQ9210957

Offered here is an excellent autograph letter signed by James Buchanan, 15th President of the United States. Buchanan wrote this letter in April of 1840, while Senator from Pennsylvania, to his future secretary, Adam J. Glossbrenner, regarding copies of Massachusetts Senator John Davis's speeches and Buchanan's replies. The letter reads:

Washington 17 April 1840
My dear Sir,
It would afford me very great pleasure to send you Davis' speeches if I could; but I have only one copy of each & cannot spare it. By yesterday's mail I transmitted to you my three speeches published in pamphlet form, and I now enclose to you a copy of my last rejoinder which closed the debate.

We are all very anxious to learn the closing acts of our Legislature. I do not believe that their memory will be much cherished by the people of Pennsylvania.

From your friend
very respectfully,
James Buchanan

Adam J. Glossbrenner

The letter measures 8" x 13" and has several creases from original folds. Strong Buchanan signature in blue ink. Light dust soiling in margins. The paper is in excellent sturdy condition, not stiff, and not particularly delicate.
