JAMES BUCHANAN
Signed, handwritten letter as President to Henry Gilpin, who had been Van Buren's Attorney General.

I have read it with much interest. With my kindest regards to Mrs Gilpin, I remain, very respectfully." Born in Lancaster, England in 1801, Gilpin was graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1819. At 31 he became U.S. Attorney for Pennsylvania. From January 11, 1840 to March 3, 1841 Gilpin was Van Buren's Attorney General. It was probably at this time that Gilpin first became acquainted with fellow Pennsylvanian, then Senator James Buchanan. Mounting remnants at top verso with show-through.
