#7 - Franklin Pierce Estimate: $1,500+

"Have you seen Genl. Davis' speech," writes the president, "It is characteristically extreme but at the same time able, patriotic and eloquent"

ALS as president, one page both sides, lightly lined, 7.75 x 9.75, October 29, 1857. In part: "It must be extremely gratifying to you to observe how your election as senator is noticed by the Democratic press. An honest man may be sure of his reward if he will patiently wait. How heartily I congratulate you it is not necessary for me to express…Have you seen Genl. Davis' speech addressed to his Missi. Seacoast friends—It is characteristically extreme but at the same time able, patriotic and eloquent…I have been passing the summer on the sea coast quietly and happily. Mrs. Pierce's health is somewhat improved and my own is, as usual, excellent." In fine condition, with writing showing through from opposing sides.
