Description


Wife (1775-1864) of President William Henry Harrison and grandmother of President Benjamin Harrison, who served nominally as First Lady of the United States during her husband's one-month term in 1841, though she never entered the White House. ALS signed “A. Harrison,” three pages on two adjoining sheets, 7.75 x 12.5, July 17, 1831. Letter to Mrs. Phebe R. Reeve in Mattituck, New York, relaying family gossip and news. In part: "This is the Sabbath, and as I am not able to attend meeting, owing to not feeling well, I intend to elevate part of the day in writing to one…[I] was truly sorry to hear of the death of cousin Molly Wells, but alas we must all, very shortly follow. You expressed a wish some years ago to be inform'd wether the three Harrison's whose names were mentioned, in a paper, which contain'd the exercises of in the Cincinnati College, at one of its commencements, were our sons—you could not have received my letter in answer to it, as I recalled perfectly, telling you that they were—I had then three sons, without any daughters between them—They are now all married, & have children. We have one son now at the Miami University…He is 19 years old, him & his sister Anna, three years younger than himself, are all of our children that are unmarried. The latter has now gone with her Father, to Vincennes in Indiana. Her health is quite delicate…Did you ever hear anything so wonderful as the very many great & powerfull revivals of religion, as has been and still are in different parts of the United States? We have been very much blessed in these western states." Addressed on the integral leaf in Harrison's hand. In very good condition, with scattered light staining, and splitting along intersecting folds. From the Collection of Dr. Lawrence E. Miller.
