    Description

    James Garfield Autograph Letter Signed "J. A. Garfield" as President-elect. One page, 5 x 8" Mentor, Ohio, November. 5, 1880 to General R. C. Schenk in thanks for the congratulations on his November 2 election to the Presidency: "You know how heartily I thank you for your kind Congratulations- God bless you..." Light horizontal creases, else very fine condition, extremely bright and clean. This is a superb example from the period immediately prior to his taking office -- a job that ultimately cost him his life at the hands of Charles Guiteau, the failed office-seeker and madman. Ex. Henry E. Luhrs Collection.
