[GROVER CLEVELAND]. Cabinet Card, unsigned. B/w with brown hue, 4¼x6¼ overall, image 3¾x5½ (two surfaces). © C.M Bell. This print, from a photograph taken by C.M. Bell of Washington, D.C. during Cleveland's second term in office, dates from 1890-1910. After 1880, cabinet cards became more popular than carte-de-visites. The only President to serve two non-consecutive terms, Grover Cleveland (1837-1908) was also the first Democratic President since Buchanan left office before the Civil War. During his first term (as 22nd U.S. President, 1885-1889), he denied hundreds of fraudulent pension claims by veterans and replaced many civil service workers appointed by the spoils system, doubling the number of those employed by merit. The Republican-controlled Senate demanded justification for these dismissals, but Cleveland - renowned as the "Veto President" - refused to submit, claiming that the President had sole discretion in the removal of government personnel. After his second election (as 24th U.S. President, 1893-1897), Cleveland helped strengthen the gold standard, and he eased the Depression of 1893 by sponsoring the repeal of the Sherman Silver Purchase Act of 1890. Cleveland also sent federal troops into Chicago to end the Pullman Strike (1894) and employed the Monroe Doctrine to force Great Britain to settle the Venezuela boundary dispute (1895). He had previously served as Governor of New York (1883-1885). Embossed at lower margin. Lightly soiled. ¼-inch tear at upper blank margin of mount. Overall, fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 10¾x16¾.
