#12 - John Tyler Autograph Letter Signed Estimate: $600+

"My opinion becomes daily stronger that a Regiment of Volunteers is precisely what is wanting"

ALS signed “J. Tyler,” one page both sides, 4.75 x 7.25, no date. Handwritten letter to John Canfield Spencer, in full: "I return you the letter of Col. Randolph and will wait for the Report of General Jones. My opinion becomes daily stronger that a Regiment of Volunteers is precisely what is wanting. Such a corps once organized and displayed will induce others to raise and uniform additional companies and at the seat of gov't we shall cut a respectable appearance not only in the eyes of our own people but of foreigners who visit the city." In fine condition. John Canfield Spencer would be promoted to Tyler's cabinet as Secretary of War in 1841, and then as Secretary of the Treasury in 1843.
