Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $500.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Eminent American senator and statesman (1813-1861), dubbed the 'Little Giant,' perhaps best remembered for his role in the Lincoln-Douglas debates during the 1858 campaign for the Senate race in Illinois. ALS signed “S. A. Douglas,” one page, 7.75 x 9.75, December 3, 1854. Letter to Sidney Webster, who had been the private White House secretary to President Franklin Pierce. In part: "The protracted illness of Mrs. Douglas, and myself, will account for the delay in acknowledging the receipt of your very kind letter. I have read the slip which you enclosed, and have seen several other articles, to the same effect, which I have no doubt received the sanction of Gen. Pierce,before their publication." In fine condition, with faint toning along the horizontal folds.
