Description: FILLMORE, MILLARD. (1800-1874). Thirteenth president of the United States. Free Frank as president. (“M. Fillmore”). 1p. 12mo. Washington, D.C., October 12, [1852-1853]. A franked envelope addressed to Jacob Chamberlain Esq. of New York City, bearing a black-ink “Free” postmark in the left margin and with an intact red wax presidential seal on the verso. ********** In July 1850, after only 16 months in office, Zachary Taylor died suddenly from what was then diagnosed as acute gastroenteritis. Vice-President Fillmore succeeded him and served out the remainder of the term, during which the Compromise of 1850 was passed, thus delaying the deadly conflict between slave and free states that would erupt into the Civil War, eleven years later. Although Fillmore attempted to win the Whig nomination in 1852, he was defeated. He made a second failed attempt to gain the presidency in 1856 on the Know-Nothing ticket. He was the last Whig to hold the nation’s highest office. ********** With normal wear and in very good condition. Fillmore Free Franks as president are rare.
