Typed Letter signed: "Charles Dick" as US Senator, 1 page,
8¼x10½. Columbus, Ohio, 1904 August 3. On letterhead of the Ohio State
Republican Executive Committee (Charles Dick, Chairman) to Col. John O. Winship,
Cumberland Mills, Maine. In full: "Your esteemed favor of July 28th
has just come to hand, and I am very glad indeed to hear from you. It will
afford me pleasure to send you a supply of campaign literature and a copy of the
text book as soon as these documents are ready for distribution, and your letter
had been placed on file for that purpose. With kindest regards, and trusting the
Republican party may have your valuable aid in electing, not only its candidate
for President this fall, but in many subsequent campaigns, I remain, Very truly
yours". Charles William Frederick Dick (1858-1915) represented Ohio in
the US House of Representatives (1898-1904) and Senate (1904-1911). When he
signed this letter, Dick had recently been elected (March 2) to fill the
unexpired term of the late Senator Marcus "Mark" Hannah." An army volunteer who
had served in Cuba during the Spanish-American War, Dick sponsored
legislation (the Dick Acts of 1903 and 1908) laying the foundation of the modern
National Guard. The National Guard Association awards annually a Charles Dick
Award to an elected state or federal official serving in the National Guard.
