    Martin Van Buren Franked Envelope and Autograph Letter Signed "M. Van Buren." One page letter with integral address leaf signed by Van Buren as well, measures 8" x 9.6", dated January 29, 1844, written from Lindenwald. The letter featured here is written to a Mr. E.H. Drury in Vermont. The content is routine. On the integral address leaf Van Buren signs his name and writes " Free." The letter was canceled on January 30; the stamp is still visible, as well as Van Buren's wax seal. The letter is in fine condition; small tear on the left edge where wax seal was broken; usual folds are present; small brown redox spots on several localized areas on the first page. Accompanying the letter is a cut out picture of a Van Buren painting. A Nice addition to the letter for framing or matting. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
