PHILETUS SAWYER
Signature on a strip of paper
Signature: "Philetus Sawyer/Wisconsin", 7½x3. Philetus Sawyer (1816-1900) made a fortune in the lumber business, first with a saw mill and later with finished wooden furniture. He was Mayor of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, before being elected to the US House of Representatives (1865-1875). He declined to run for re-election, but later represented Wisconsin in the US Senate (1881-1893). A member of the "Stalwart" faction of the Republican Party (opposed to civil service reform), he clashed with young "progressive Republican" Congressman Robert LaFollette, who accused Sawyer of offering him a bribe. Sawyer acknowledged offering money, but said it was for LaFollette's legal services. Edges toned and frayed. Otherwise, fine condition.
