Sell Your Martin Van Buren Ribbon

Martin Van Buren was the eighth U.S. president and had previously served as vice president, secretary of state and governor of New York. He was well-liked and known for being a sharp politician, but only served one presidential term. The Panic of 1837 began early in his presidency and hurt his image despite having no role in its development. Van Buren is still positively regarded as he helped form the Democratic party and was vital in the evolution of the U.S. political system.

Declining to Forgo Retirement to Heal Divisiveness on Slavery, Martin Van Buren Writes in 1855: ”…I regret…the present inauspicious condition of the country, upon the slave subject…”

Martin Van Buren autograph letter signed, dated 3 October 1855 from Lindenwald, his home in New York, and with the additional free frank signed envelope. Van Buren replies to fellow New York Democrat Edward G.W. Butler who urged Van Buren to come out of retirement to help settle the divisive slavery question. Van Buren, President from 1837-1841, lost re-election but ran again as the anti-slavery Free Soil candidate in 1848. Upon his defeat, he retired to Lindenwald. Van Buren’s letter reads in part, ”…I regret…the present inauspicious condition of the country, upon the slave subject…I…know, by repeated experience how potent the influence which the united Democracy of New York may be made to exercise healing public disorders…& am sincerely friendly to the restoration of harmony to its ranks. In regard to State affairs, that result is being brought about…but, in regard to Federal politics, the task is far more difficult; &, I fear, far beyond the power of my individual efforts of any man…” He signs, ”M. Van Buren”. Three page letter measures 8.25” x 10.5”. Minor creasing and tearing to edges with minor loss of text. Some words traced over in unknown hand. Accompanying hand addressed envelope bears free franking signature, ”Free / M. Van Buren”. Overall in very good condition. Sold for $3,125.
