MANTON MARBLE. Signature: "Aug 1 - 1866/Manton Marble", 4¼x5½. On sheet imprinted: "'The World' Office,/35 Park Row, New York." Manton Marble (1834-1917) was a journalist in Boston and New York who was chief editor of the "New York World" from 1862 until its sale in 1876. Supported by wealthy Democrats, including August Belmont (then head of the Democratic National Committee) and Samuel Tilden, the "World" supported the Party's programs and candidates. Manton's paper supported the Union war effort but opposed emancipation, and it endorsed Lincoln's opponent, George McClellan, in the Presidential election of 1864, following Lincoln's sanctions against the paper after it printed an erroneous report of a draft of 400,000 additional soldiers in May 1864. Marble later lobbied the administration of President Cleveland (1885-1889, 1893-1897) to abandon the gold standard in favor of bimetallism, a policy rebuffed by Cleveland but embraced by the next Democratic nominee, William Jennings Bryan. By that time, however, Marble head moved to England and was no longer influential in American politics. Lightly creased with fold, mid-horizontal fold at signature. Mounting remnants and stains on verso of blank integral leaf show through at corners and blank left and right margins. Overall, fair condition.
