Lot 21: LS as president, one page, 5 x 7.75, October 14, 1841. Letter to Samuel Lewis. In full: "The second auditor, desirous of being absent for a few days, you are authorised to discharge his duties, as such, until he returns to the seat of government." In fine condition, with intersecting folds. At this time Tyler had only been president for six months, having assumed the executive office after the death of President William Henry Harrison in April. A desirable, bold example as president.
