    Description

    OUTSTANDING 1828 HANDWRITTEN ANDREW JACKSON LETTER. Written from the Hermitage, his legendary Tennessee estate, in the year he was first elected to the presidency.  Written to the cashier of his bank in Nashwille, it gives detailed account of his efforts to collect monies due him and offers convoluted plans to satisfy his own financial obligations (clearly he was under economic duress, as he was through much of his life).  Excellent content reflecting on important aspect of his life and character.  Very nice condition, with exceptional large, bold signature.  Also signed on reverse side as part of return address (letters in thos times were simply folder up and mailed, rather than being placed in envelopes.  Small area where piece out of edge has been restored, not touching any written part.  The letter has been cloth backed quite some time ago. 8 x 10". LOA Spence and Grad 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.
