Lot 24: Zachary Taylor - Scarce LS as president signed Z. Taylor
8th March 2017
Scarce LS as president signed “Z. Taylor,” one page, 8 x 10, July 23, 1849. Letter to Benjamin Seaver, in part: "I have only received your favor of the 20th inst. asking the time when I shall visit Boston etc. In reply I am compelled to say, (and the same has already been announced in in many of the public journals), that the time of my departure and the route to be taken are yet uncertain. It is my wish to visit not only Boston, but several places in its vicinity, and I shall prolong my stay in Eastern Massachusetts sufficient for that purpose, but whether it will be before or after the Syracuse Fair." In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope, franked in the upper right by the president, "Z. Taylor." Taylor as president is uncommon across all formats, as he served only 16 months before he died suddenly on July 9, 1850; this example, with additional free franked envelope, boasts an ideally bold, crisp signature.
