    William Henry Seward: Autograph Letter Signed. 1-page letter, 5" x 7" bifolium stationery, Washington, D.C., January 9, 1853, written and signed by Seward, addressed to Harlan S. Love, Esq. In part: "... A slow coach is that which brings the California mails... I am engaged in studying a report on the [illegible] of the Pacific and doing what I can for the Railroad... It is difficult to steer... the passage of the Virgin Resolutions... amid the breakers of local interests. I think we shall be able to agree on a bill that will go through the Senate." Minor separation at one fold. Good political and railroad content.
