The Unitarian President Fillmore thanks the Presbyterian Rev. Septimus Justin for "a beautiful picture of ‘ancient Jerusalem,' executed… by the Messrs. Wunderlichs...” No locality possesses so much interest for the Christian community, Fillmore remarks, “as this little spot where our Saviour performed many of his most extraordinary works and was finally crucified.”
Letter Signed, as President, 1 page, quarto, Washington City, June 17, 1852. To Rev. Septimus Justin. With franked envelope.
