Sam Houston Autograph Letter Signed as Texas Senator — Houston Lectures in the North on Slavery

Sam Houston autograph letter signed, dated 9 January 1852 as Senator from Texas. From Washington, Houston writes to Riva Griffith Owen referencing a series of lectures he gave across the North in early 1852 regarding slavery, in part: ”My Dear Sir, I expected to be in New York on the 18th Feby, and intended to be at Phila and Lecture, on my way, neither going, or returning…I fear it will not be in my power, on the 27th Inst. I hope February will do? You can write to me + say…I am truly / your Friend / Sam Houston”. In these 1852 lectures, Houston advocated for compromise regarding the expansion of slavery. He argued against the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854, correctly believing it would lead to war, borne out in ”Bleeding Kansas” of the late 1850s. Single page letter measures 7.5” x 9.25”, handsomely framed in black and gold with an engraving of Houston, measuring 21.5” x 16.25” in total. Minimal foxing, otherwise near fine with bold writing.  Sold for $3,781.
