JAMES G. BLAINE, FREDERICK A. PIKE and LORENZO DE MEDICI SWEAT
Three members of Maine's delegation in the 38th Congress, including Speaker (and future Secretary of State) Blaine, sign their names
Signatures: "L. D. M. Sweat/Portland/Maine", "F. A. Pike/Maine", "J. G. Blaine/Maine", 5½x8½. JAMES G. BLAINE (1830-1893), who began his political career in the Maine state House of Representatives (1859-1862; Speaker 1861-1862), later served as a Republican U.S. Congressman (1863-1876; Speaker of the House, 1868-1875) and U.S. Senator (1876-1881) from the state. Secretary of State under Presidents Garfield and Arthur (1881) and Benjamin Harrison (1889-1892), Blaine was nominated for President at five consecutive Republican National Conventions: 1876, 1880, 1884, 1888 and 1892. He won the nomination in 1884, but lost the November election to New York Governor Grover Cleveland after a campaign characterized by mud-slinging on both sides. LORENZO DE MEDICI SWEAT (1818-1898), formerly City Solicitor of Portland and a Maine state senator, was elected as a Democrat to the 38th Congress (1863-1865), defeated for re-election in 1864. He served four years on the Democratic National Committee (1872-1876). FREDERICK A. PIKE (1816-1886), a Republican and former Mayor of Calais, Maine, served four terms in the US Congress (1861-1869), defeated for a fifth term. Left edge notched and creased from binding. Lightly toned. Light surface creases. Fine condition.
