Souvenir quotation in a collector’s hand, one page, 7.5 x 8.75, lightly lined, signed at the conclusion in black ink by Buchanan. In full: “‘Whilst the other nations of the world are distracted by domestic dissentions, and are involved in a struggle between the privileges of the few and the rights of the many, Heaven has blessed our happy land with a Government which secures equal rights to all our citizens, and has produced Peace, Happiness and Contentment throughout our borders. It has combined Liberty with Order, and all the sacred and indefeasible rights of the citizens with the strictest observance of law.’ (From the letter of Mr. Buchanan, Secretary of State of the U. S. conveying to the people of California the views of President Polk respecting their condition and prospects.—October 7, 1848)." In fine condition, with a repaired tear to the left edge.
