DANIEL WEBSTER (January 18,
1782 – October 24, 1852) served twice in the United States House of
Representatives, representing New Hampshire (1813 – 1817), as a U.S. Senator
from Massachusetts (1827 – 1841) and twice as Secretary of State, under
Presidents William Henry Harrison, John Tyler and Millard Fillmore. Webster
also sought the Whig Party’s nomination for President three times. As with his
colleague Henry Clay, Webster worked for compromises to stave off the
sectionalism that threatened war between the North and South. His support of
the Compromise of 1850, devised in part by Clay, proved crucial to its passage.
Offering a 4 x 9 cover with Webster’s signature as the sender of a letter to James McNaughton of Albany, NY, who was likely Dr. McNaughton, who served as President of Albany County Medical Society and taught at Albany Medical College. The letter is not present.
Toning to cover extending into Webster’s name. Still a very bold Webster signature.
