Hand addressed signed envelope “free frank” AS PRESIDENT
Free frank signed “M. Fillmore”. 1p., address panel, 5.0 x 3.0 inch, Washington, (1850-1853), no post stamp, probably hand delivered. Addressed by a secretary to “Asbury Dickins Esq. Secry of the Senate”. Another free frank envelope with the same blue paper and with the same secretary handwriting was sold some years ago. It had a red wax seal of the President on verso, therefore I’m sure that the envelope was signed as President. Handsomely matted in gray with a photo of Fillmore to an overall of 7.75 x 11.75 inch. Both items removable affixed with photo corners. Fine condition. Asbury Dickins (1780–1861) was a United States government official who served as Secretary of the United States Senate from 1836 until shortly before his death in 1861.
