Rare 1848 presidential campaign stationery with illustrated portrait of Zachary Taylor, a facsimile signature of the general, and bearing the motto: "Gen'l. Taylor Never Surrenders." Each corner of the portrait bears the name of a battle in which Taylor played a significant role, engraved by William H. Dannel, 1p. 4to., Branch Port, [New York], Oct. 27, 1848 with letter written by a certain A. E. Pettingill to Dr. H. Barden, reading, in part: "My wife is out of ague pills & has been for 2 or 3 days. She stall has the ague & fever…don't have much shake…a sort of dumb ague it comes on earlier every day. She is troubled with her breast-has some pain…you had better come & see her…yours in haste, A. E. Pettingill." With integral address panel postmarked and addressed: "Branchport, N. Y., 26 Oct., Paid 5. Doct. H. Barden, Pann (sic) Yan, Yates Co., N. Y." An unusual use for a campaign letterhead! Light soiling, else near fine.
