Here is a great hand written letter by the 13th President of the United States, Millard Fillmore. This one page is written on black edged with mourning paper that measures 8 inches by 10 inches. It was written by Fillmore from "Washington City" on July 10th 1852 and is marked "Private". The letter was written to Zaccheus Collins Lee (1895-1859), a Maryland lawyer and jurist who served as a U.S. district attorney, concerning a possible pardon. President Fillmore states that "Your letter of the 8th inst. from Stanton [Staunton?], came to hand this morning, and I regret to hear that your ill health will detain you some time in Virginia, and especially, as it deprives me of the pleasure of a verbal conversation in reference to the pardon of Capt. Gardiner....This has led me to suspect that there is something about the case which I do not understand, and I have therefore desired a full, free, and confidential conversation with you on the subject." Fillmore was born in New York on January 7th 1800. He served one term as President from July 9, 1850 until March 4, 1853. President Fillmore died on March 8th 1874. The letter is accompanied by a modern xerox image of Fillmore.
