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. Front portion of a cover with his free frank, identifying his location as U.S. Senate.
