ALS, one page, 3.5 x 3.5, April 6, 1858. Short response to an autograph request penned from "Sherwood Forest," in full: "Accept in this, my autograph as you requested, Resp'ly y'rs, John Tyler." Attractively double-matted and framed with a portrait to an overall size of 15 x 11.5. In fine condition, with slight overall fading. Tyler had purchased a plantation in Virginia in 1842, naming it "Sherwood Forest" to signify his status as an ‘outlaw’ from the Whig Party. He retired to the estate after leaving the White House in March 1845, remaining there for the rest of his life.
