December 20, 1852 to John Priestly, marked "PRIVATE." Fillmore, who in June, 1852, lost to Winfield Scott the nomination to be the Whig candidate for President, writes of his conferring with members of Congress on a piece of legislation. "Although I feel no greater interest in this matter that should any member of the Whig party, yet I shall sincerely regret to learn that the Review cannot be continued on its present basis.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
