    Description

    Martin Van Buren Autograph Letter Signed. Written Soon Before His Nomination for President, 1836. A good content autograph letter signed, "M. Van Buren," 3 pages, 5" x 7.25", Washington, April 9, 1836, to a fellow politician in Connecticut writing to "...congratulate you upon the auspicious result of the election in your state. In thinking of our lamented friend Judge J. Kinnen you bring to my remembrance one whom I greatly esteemed for this personal qualities, and who was with as sound a Democrat as your or any other State has ever produced. Would that he might have lived to witness the regeneration which has taken place in Litchfield which was to me the scene of his persecutions. Our accounts from Virginia & from every where else are very flattering..." The last sentence likely refers to reports on the disposition of delegates who would nominate him on the first ballot at the Democratic Convention in Baltimore the following month. Bright and clean, usual light creases, beautifully matted with full length engraved portrait of a seated Van Buren. The frame is hinged so that the letter and signature is visible from all sides. From the collection of Bradley O'Leary. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
