PRESIDENT JEFFERSON DAVIS (CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA) - AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED 02/03/1848 - HFSID 27380

 
JEFFERSON DAVIS. ALS: "Jeffer Davis" as U.S. Senator, 1p, 8x10. Senate Chamber, 1848 February 3. The future President of the Confederacy writes to Polk's Secretary of War W.L. Marcy. In full: "I enclose to you a letter from J.M. Taylor now in Mexico, and of whom I spoke to you as the Son of Col. J.P. Taylor. The appointment of Mr. Taylor as solicited will be greatly oblige." On June 13, 1835, Davis had married Sarah Knox Taylor, 21-year-old daughter of Zachary Taylor. She died just three months later. Col. Joseph P. Taylor was Gen. Zachary Taylor's only living brother. The appointment was made and his son, John McLean Taylor (named after his maternal grandfather, Supreme Court Justice John McLean), entered the U.S. Army on March 3, 1848, as 2nd Lieutenant in the 3rd Artillery. Gen. Zachary Taylor became the Whig nominee for President just four months later. Since Marcy was a Democrat, it was wise for Davis not to mention that he was seeking an appointment for Gen. Taylor's nephew. Crease touches the "fe" in Jefferson. Darkly penned, fine condition.
