JEFFERSON DAVIS. Autograph Letter signed: "Jeffn..Davis", 1p, 3¾x6. No place, no date. On stationery embossed with the seal of Taylor and Maury [publishers], Washington, to "My Dear Madam". Davis has designated the letter for "Quarter to 5 hr. Pick." In full: "Your messenger does not deserve to be called Mercury, the note he bore having just now been delivered, I fear an engagement for this evening will detain me until after the hour when I could hope to be received. In that event I will have the honor to call tomorrow. The steps were sanded and are in no wise dangerous. Truly your friend". Jefferson Davis (1808-1889), the only President of the Confederate States (1861-1865), served two nonconsecutive terms in the U.S. Senate (1847-1851, 1857-1861). Davis, a West Pointer, commanded the First Regiment of Mississippi Riflemen in the Mexican War (1846-1847). He later served as Secretary of War under President Pierce (1853-1857). Davis, a reluctant convert to secession and one of the last southern legislators to leave Washington, nevertheless dedicated the rest of his life to the Confederate cause, refusing to countenance surrender until his capture by federal troops and devoting the rest of his life to justifying "the lost cause." Slightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
