GEORGE W. McBRIDE
On US Senate letterhead, he declines an invitation to a Republican event in New York.
Typed Letter signed: "Geo. W. McBride" as US Senator, 1 page, 8x10. Washington, D.C., 1898 February 11. On Senate letterhead to Lucien L. Bonheur, President, Republican Club, New York City. In full: "I beg leave to acknowledge the receipt of your favor of recent date, inviting me to attend the Administration Ball to be given at Lenox Lyceum on the evening of March 3, 1898, and enclosing a ticket therefor, which I return herewith. I regret very much that other engagements for that date preclude my acceptance of your kind invitation. Yours very truly". George W. McBride (1854-1911) was Speaker of Oregon's House of Representatives (1892-1894) and its Secretary of State (1887-1895) before serving one term as a US Senator (1895-1901). Admirers of small government should praise McBride's chairmanship of the Committee on Transportation Routes to the Seaboard in the 54th Congress. The Committee never met during his tenure. George McBride's brother John also served in the US House, while another brother, Thomas, served on Oregon's Supreme Court. Normal mailing folds. Lightly creased and toned. Top left corner torn from page. Otherwise, fine condition.
