PIERCE, Franklin (1804-1869) was the 14th President of the United States (1853–1857), a northern Democrat who saw the abolitionist movement as a fundamental threat to the unity of the nation. He alienated anti-slavery groups by championing and signing the Kansas–Nebraska Act and enforcing the Fugitive Slave Act; yet he failed to stem conflict between North and South, setting the stage for Southern secession and the American Civil War. Autograph Letter Signed “Franklin Pierce” as President of the United States of America, 2pp. octavo, January 21, 1857, addressed to E.L. Childs in Washington, it reads in part: “...In the midst of my many engagements I had neglected to call Mr. Whiting’s attention particularly to the application of Mrs. Larkin until yesterday. I am much gratified to learn from a note just received....that the evidence in the case was satisfactory and that he sent, to you a few days since the certificate allowing 50$ per month (the highest rate allowable.) Fine condition Pierce would remain president until March 4, 1857, when he was succeded by James Buchanan.
