Description

    Millard Fillmore Franking Signature. 5" x 2.75" (sight). Franking signature, "M Fillmore" on a cover addressed to "P. Fendall, Esq. U.S. Dist. Attorney." Someone has written "Wills's case" perpendicularly across the left side. Matted and framed with a steel engraving of Fillmore to an overall size of 12.75" x 19.75". A caption written on the mat reads: "Presented to the Reverend George M. Minnix for fortieth birthday from Robert B. Beardsley."

    Millard Fillmore became president when Zachary Taylor died while in office. His attempts to reach a compromise on the slavery issue made him unpopular with both sides, and he failed to get the Whig Party's nomination to run for a full term in 1852. A later attempt on the Know-Nothing ticket also failed.

    Condition: Light staining at in center of cover, does not affect signature.
