NEWTON D. BAKER
The Mayor and Secretary of War to Woodrow Wilson signs this note thanking a friend for his kind message
Autograph note signed: "Newton D Baker" in black ink. 5¾x3¾. December 5, 1930. Written on letterhead of Baker, Hostetler & Sidlo. In full: "Thank you, my dear Mr. Elsbach, for your gracious message. Life has many lessings, among the choices- being kind friends. Cordially yours". Newton Diehl Baker (1871-1937) was Mayor of Cleveland, Ohio (1912-1915) before serving as President Woodrow Wilson's Secretary of War from 1916 to1921. It was Baker who, on June 27, 1918, pulled numbers out of a fishbowl, drafting men ages 21 to 31 into the military for World War I. Baker electrified the 1924 Democratic National Convention with a fiery speech advocating US membership in the League of Nations and a return to Wilsonian principles in foreign policy. Baker was a skilled lawyer, who argued a case successfully before the Supreme Court in 1926. Lightly toned. Corners rounded and creased. Light adhesive residue on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
