Here the bibliophilic Fillmore, whose time in the White House was best spent, by all accounts, building its library, thanks a prominent Albany publisher for “a copy of that indispensible ‘Manual’ to every New Yorker, ‘The Red Book,’” on his last day in office. Fillmore is rare in hand-written letters as President.
Autograph Letter Signed, as President, 1 page, octavo, Washington, March 3, 1853. To Charles Van Benthuysen.
