EUGENE HALE
Eugene Hale, U. S. Representative and Senator from Maine, wrote this letter on U. S. Senate Chamber stationery to thank the recipient for a book: "When I feel that I need a good laugh I read a chapter or two of your book".
Autograph letter signed "Eugene Hale". 2 pages, 4¾x7¾, single-sided sheets, on U. S. Senate Chamber stationery. Washington, D. C., dated "24 December". In full: "My dear Mr [illegible] There is no [illegible] of fun in '[illegible] to [illegible]'- &I thank you for send it to me- When I feel that I need a good laugh I read a chapter or two of your book - very truly yours". Hale (1836-1918) was a Republican U. S. Representative from Maine's 5th Congressional District (1869-1879) and U. S. Senator from Maine (1881-1911), as well as a member of Maine's state house of representatives (1867-1868 and 1879-1880). The chairman of several U. S. Senate committees, Hale is probably best remembered for helping to expand and modernize the U. S. Navy. President Rutherford B. Hayes even offered him the post of Secretary of the Navy, a post that he declined. Lightly toned, soiled and creased. Neatly torn from binding at left edge. Folded in half and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
