    Andrew Jackson Autograph Letter Signed as President "Andrew Jackson". One page, 5" x 8", [Washington], October 24, 1833, to [Lewis Case] Secretary of War, toned with a few small splits in the fold creases and mounting remnants on the verso, otherwise bright, legible and in very good condition.

    The letter reads in full: "Dr. Sir: I have reflected on the subject you submitted to me yesterday as it relates to Dr. Thomas, and the result of my reflections are, that from the confidence reposed in Dr. Thomas here, it would produce a good effect to have him stationed in this city for a while at least, if it can be done in justice to others - & it would have a good effect in doing away with the prevailing idea of the favoritism of the Surgeon-Genl, which now exists. Yrs. Respectfully, Andrew Jackson".
