Presidential invitation to dinner, printed with manuscript, addressed to "Honble. Mr. Prentiss of the Senate / Fletcher" (possibly Samuel Prentiss, 1781-1857, serving as Senator from Vermont 1831-1842), "Tuesday the 23rd of Dec'r at 5 o'clock." Pencil notations indicate this was issued by President Andrew Jackson (1767-1845, serving as President 1829-1837), likely in 1834, during his second term in the White House. However, Prentiss and Jackson were not known to be political allies. Bifold on off-white paper. 7 1/2" x 9 1/2" overall. Provenance: the estate of Dr. Benjamin Caldwell, Jr., Nashville, Tennessee. CONDITION: Previous owner pencil inscriptions indicating the invitation was issued by President Andrew Jackson; 1 1/4' repair with tape at one corner; toning, separations to fold lines. Sticker is on plastic sheath, not the paper.
