Lot 31: ALS signed "M. Van Buren," one page both sides, 7.75 x 9.75, June 20, 1829. Letter to the secretary of war. In part: "Major Sproult of N. York is a candidate for the superintendent of the armory at Harpers ferry. I sincerely hope it will be in your power to gratify him. The recommendations he has submitted render it almost superfluous that I should add anything on the score of his merits and capacity. I will therefore only say that if you can find it consistent to appoint him I am entirely satisfied he will discharge the duties of the place with credit to kinship & usefulness." Removably encapsulated in a mylar sleeve. In fine condition. RR Auction's Fine Autographs And Artifacts Auction 471 Wednesday, 9th March 2016 Estimate: $600-800
