    MOST UNUSUAL AND DRAMATIC 1848 ZACHARY TAYLOR POLITICAL CAMPAIGN LETTERHEAD. Measuring 8 inches by 10 inches with a large 3 ½ inch portrait of Taylor below " Gen Taylor Never Surrenders", with his facsimile signature at the upper left. This is actually a 4 sided letterhead joined at the left spine and carries a lengthy handwritten letter dated Aug. 6, 1848, during the heart of the Presidential campaign. Although the content is mostly non- political, it does include the comment; " I need not tell you that this is a ‘Rough and Ready‘ letter as you in all probability have found it out, as actions speak louder than words." Minor light age browning along the original fold lines, otherwise great shape. WE don’t recall seeing this striking style (or any other similar one with such a large portrtait) before.

    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.
