Title:

Two letters from Millard Fillmore: Washington, D.C. : ALS, 1850 and 1853

Creator/Contributor:

Fillmore, Millard, 1800-1874, creator

Abstract:

To John J. Anderson, New York City. Answering his correspondent's question, he replies that he expects a bill for the admission of California as a state to "pass Congress by the first of August; ... Of her admission, during the present session, I scarcely entertain a doubt."
To Gilbert Davis. Seeking "to do justice to a political opponent who is now in his grave", Fillmore denies that "President Polk was heartless and cold", indicating that both General Taylor and Fillmore were entertained graciously by Polk at the White House before Polk left it.
