ALS as president signed “Frank. Pierce,” four pages on two adjoining sheets, 5 x 7.75, September 14, 1854. Letter to his secretary Sydney Webster, in full: "I believe Mrs. Pierce wrote you a few lines the day after our return. I have no idea where this is likely to find you but I hope at some pleasant place with agreeable surroundings and in good health. The fireman & two or three of the girls in the basement are more or less indisposed but none of them seriously sick. The city continues to be healthy and the copious rains since Sunday have greatly improved the aspect of things, altho' it will be pleasant to find the usual occupant in the next room. I hope you will not think of returning before the first of October, after a sojourn in New England. I have no doubt that you would find the weather here during the remainder of the month very oppressive—Do not fail to call on Mrs. Means and Mrs. Aiken at Andover if you can do so conveniently—I hope you will also take the trouble to see Mr. & Mrs. Williams at Concord—They are kind friends and would I know desire to see anyone directly from our family—Smith will be appointed Navy Agent at Charlestown—Forney is in good health and you will perceive from reading the Union continuing to perform yeoman service—give my kindest regards to Colo. George & other friends." In very good condition, with overall irregular toning.
