Andrew Jackson Rare ALS to Martin Van Buren Mentioning Polk
JACKSON, ANDREW. Autograph Letter Signed, "Andrew Jackson", April 10, 1840, 1 p. "Hermitage". Integral address leaf in Jackson's hand, "Free" in unknown hand. Tanned, skillful repair to fold separation on verso. Immaculate appearance, beautifully matted and ready for framing.
Jackson writes to President Van Buren, in part, "I have just learned that it will not be convenient for the Department of War to give Mr. A. Harris the Sutlers place at Fort Gibson, and perhaps, it could not be given him with propriety. I am also informed that there will be a vacancy soon in the pay department - if so, a more fit person could not be chosen that Mr. Harris, or one whose capacity and integrity could be better vouched - and this appointment would be gratefully acknowledged, by Genl. Robert Armstrong ...I am sure that Mr. A. Harris can produce from Govr. Polk, and Genl. Carroll & all the Democracy as high credentials as any man."
