Tyler, John (1790-1862) 10th President of the U.S. Governor (1825-27) of Virginia and U.S. senator (1827-36). A moderate states' rights Democrat, he was a reluctant supporter of Andrew Jackson during his two terms as president but eventually broke with the Democrats and joined the new Whig Party. In 1840 he was running mate to the Whig presidential candidate, William Henry Harrison, and they waged the victorious "Tippecanoe and Tyler too" campaign. Harrison died on Apr. 4, 1841, after only one month as president, and Tyler became the first vice president to succeed to the presidency. Tyler's chief accomplishments as president were the Webster-Ashburton Treaty (1843) with Great Britain and the annexation of Texas as a state.

Free Frank ("J. Tyler"). One page, small quarto, Virginia, July 10, n.y. Addressed in another hand to "Mrs. Margaret Beeckman / Saratoga Springs / New York State." Transmittal folds; minor toning; wax residue from seal; some surface soil. Overall, very good condition.
Estimated Value $300 - 400.
Please note the extensive collection of Presidential biographies in our Political Memorabilia section.

Realized $322
