    MARTIN VAN BUREN ALS. Van Buren, Martin (1782-1862). Governor of New York, Vice-President under Andrew Jackson, 8th President of the United States. ALS, Kinderhook, November 11, 1842. Writing to Jonathan Hastings, the "Little Magician" and would-be hopeful for the presidential nomination in 1844, writes of the recently concluded state elections. "The results of the great contest in this state, may, although the returns are not all in, be safely [illeg] at 15000 majority for Gov­7 out of the 8 Senators elected this year, more than twice [illeg] of each branch of the Legislature... 3/4 of the members of Congress & the certain re-election of Silas Wright. Is this not carrying the coon with a vengeance?" Excellent.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
