FILLMORE, Millard (1800-1874). Autograph note signed ("Millard Fillnore"), as former President, to an unidentified correspondent, 22 March 1873. 1 page, an oblong card (2¼ x 3½ in.).
DECLINING TO SEND ONE PRESIDENTIAL AUTOGRAPH, BUT SUPPLYING ANOTHER. "I have no autographs of President Taylor to spare," Fillmore writes in his brief note, evidently turning down an autograph-seeker's request for a sample of the late President, whom Fillmore replaced after Taylor's death in office in 1850. The recipient had to content himself with a fine sample of Fillmore's own hand.
