    Description

    Andrew Jackson Autograph Letter Signed in the Third Person within the text. One page, 7.5" x 10", "Washington City", January 18, 1833. Jackson writes: "The President with his respects, to Genl McColla, Marshall of Ky. and, not having the pleasure of seeing him..., asks the Genl to have the goodness to forward the enclosed to Gov. Breathitt..." Uneven toning at margins, with a few small chips primarily at folds.
    Governor John Breathitt of Kentucky was a strong Jackson supporter, and originally curried favor in his home state for his position against South Carolina's actions during the Nullification Crisis. Breathitt used his political position to forward Jackson's policies in both banking and land usage. His brother George at one time, served as Jackson's personal secretary.
