Description

    Grover Cleveland Autograph Letter Signed. Three pages (of a bifolium), 4.5" x 6.75", Marion, Massachusetts; June 18, 1890. A letter to Samuel P. Curran concerning an intended gift of stock that Cleveland will not accept.

    Dear Sir

    I received the letter which I enclose, to-day.

    You spoke of some stock in a paper which you accidentally thought you enclosed. Nothing of the kind came with the letter and I am glad of it for I certainly would not consent to your donating it to me. I have no doubt you intended well, but this is no reason why you should give me any of the stock of your paper and I hope you will not further insist on doing so.

    This letter is written to inform you that I have received no stock and that I should feel obliged to return it if it had come to my hand.

    Yours truly

    Grover Cleveland

    Cleveland, who was in between two non-consecutive terms as president of the United States; at the time he wrote this letter, the former president was residing in Marion, Massachusetts, where he rented a house for the summer during the late 1880s. Cleveland served as president of the United States from 1885 to 1889 and from 1892 to 1896. Ex. R. Douglas Stuart.

    Condition: The letter has a horizontal fold and is worn at the intersection of the fold and the crease of the bifolium.
