Letter from President Millard Fillmore
to Rensselaer County Woman
19 May 1860

This letter, over 145 years old, is in the possession of Dan Light, who has kindly allowed us to reproduce it here. It was written by President Millard Fillmore (1800-1874), the 13th President of the USA (1850-1853), seven years after he had left office. By this time, he had married Troy widow Caroline Carmichael McIntosh (1813-1881) and settled in Buffalo, Erie County, NY. The addressee's name is not given; do you recognise her? If so, please email me - thanks!
