MARCUS A. HANNA
The businessman and politician signs a letter to an associate, apologizing for not thanking him earlier for his congratulations on his successful election
Typed letter signed: "M.A. Hanna", 1 page, 8x10½. Cleveland, Ohio. November 25, 1896. Republican National Committee. In full: "My Dear Sir;- Delay in acknowledging your kind congratulations upon the result of the election was occasioned by an enormous accumulation of mail and will, I trust, be pardoned. Please accept my thanks for your thoughtfulness and for your kind words. Yours truly". Marcus A. Hanna (1837-1904) was a wealthy Ohio businessman and political power broker. He was a reluctant supporter of Theodore Roosevelt as President William McKinley's running mate in 1900. Roosevelt had stood for much of what Hanna was against. The Republican political boss had successfully supported McKinley for Governor of Ohio in 1891 and 1893 and for President in 1896 and 1900. He was innovative in the area of campaign financing and became a trusted advisor to McKinley during his presidency. Upon hearing of McKinley's death, it was Hanna who said: "That damn cowboy is now President of the United States." Hanna represented Ohio in the U.S. Senate from 1897 to his death in 1904, when he was at the height of his political power. His funeral services were held in the Chamber of the United States Senate. Multiple mailing folds. Top and bottom left corners creased. Lightly toned. Light surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
