    Description

    William Henry Harrison and Daniel Webster Signed Document. Rare 2.5" x 7.5" section trimmed from a larger document including the signatures of President William Henry Harrison (1773-1841) and Secretary of State Daniel Webster (1782-1852). Though Harrison's presidency lasted only one month, Vice President John Tyler retained Webster as Secretary of State after being sworn in as Tenth U.S. President on April 4, 1841. After resigning from the cabinet in 1843 and returning to the U.S. Senate, Webster filled the State Department post a second time during the 1850-53 administration of Millard Fillmore. However, his tenure was cut short by a violent fall from a horse on October 24, 1852, when he died from a brain hemorrhage. The document, signed "W. H. Harrison" and "Daniel Webster", mounted to another sheet, is in good condition with minor soiling and acidification.
