    Description

    William Jennings Bryan: A Terrific Hand-Written and Signed Rendition of his Immortal Cross of Gold Quotation, dated July 9th, 1896, the Day He Gave the Speech at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago. What a wonderful artifact of this historic utterance! Our research failed to disclose another handwritten, signed copy of the quote appearing on the auction market, let alone one dated when he gave his speech! This autograph quotation signed is boldly written in black fountain pen ink on a stiff card measuring 6.5" x 4.25". Excellent condition, with one horizontal crease not affecting the handwriting. A terrific centerpiece for any Bryan collection! From the Merrill C. Berman Collection.
