    William McKinley Autograph Letter Signed A.L.S. "W McKinley" of House of Representatives letterhead, 1p., 5.5" x 9", [Washington, D.C.], Mar. 10, 1884, to "R.P.Porter". In part: "Your connection with the Press ought to be highly useful to the paper, and make it standard on the question of protection. Your letters written abroad should go into every household and the valuable information you acquired, on the other side, touching the labor and kindred subjects which you will doubtless use in the Press should give that paper undue circulation and widen influence throughout the country..." Very bold ink on negligibly toned paper and tipped to a larger sheet; near fine condition. With an engraving of McKinley bearing a facsimile signature.
