  1849 June 22 . Millard Fillmore ALS to P[hilo] C[ase] Fuller; Buffalo, [New York]. (2 pages)
Did not receive Fuller's letter, addressed to him at Washington, and refers him to someone to aid him on the matter. Mentions Fuller's concern with Mr. Schermerhorn. Worries that the Quakers will "exercise a controlling influence in this appointment." Notes people's "unimpaired confidence in General Taylor," but is concerned he has given so much power to his cabinet over appointments.
