Webster, Daniel

Daniel Webster – Sec. of State, Senator. Two page ALS, on a 4to bifolium sheet, with cover leaf addressed by Webster. Webster tries to amicable mediate a dispute between Samuel Upton and a Mr. Thayer. This is probably the Boston banker John Eliot Thayer who provided financial support to the family late in Webster’s life. Samuel Upton was a prominent businessman and in Massachusetts and Maine, where he also edited the Bangor Gazette newspaper. Nice association between local figures. The letter is in very good condition with the typical folds. [#5329]
