(1837 - 1908) 22nd and 24th President of the United States, supported civil service and fiscal reform. Nice content A.L.S. 3pp. 8vo., Princeton, Nov. 21, 1899, to C. H. Kavanah, of Waterford, N.Y., in part: "...The extracts from the [?] Times contain a part of an address I made in June 1898, to the boys in the [?] School near here. I have lately [read] small parts of that address...which, standing alone, have been used, purposely or inadvertently, to...misinform my position. I don't know that you will care to see it, but I take the liberty of sending you...this address. I am very seldom in New York, and when I go there my stay is very brief. I would be glad to have you come and see us...I find it impossible to look at the political situation with any hope or satisfaction...". Boldly penned and fine, with the original holograph envelope.
