    James Garfield: LS (Letter Signed). LS (Letter Signed), 5" x 8", no place, no date, likely as Member of Congress, fine. Garfield is declining a dinner invitation, reading "Dear Tucker, I regret to tell you that the only "effervescence" I am permitted to partake of at the present is the "stale, flat and unprofitable" foam of politics in the House. There are so many things up and coming, that I must stay by. Hoping for a more convenient season. I am Very Truly Yours, J.A. Garfield". A fun letter written by the former Union General, and future President of the United States.
