JAMES A. GARFIELD
Six weeks after receiving the Republican Presidential nomination, Garfield uses his Congressional stationery to answer a question about his Congressional District.
Manuscript Letter signed: "J.A. Garfield", 2p, 4¾x7¾. House of Representatives, Washington, 1880 July 17. To S.P. Wolcott, Esq., Kent, Portage County, Ohio, who had asked Garfield "what counties have composed our District during the last 47 years". Congressman Garfield lists the years from 1833-1878 that his district included Portage, Trumbull, Geanga, Ashtabula, Lake and/or Mahoning counties. Garfield represented Ohio in Congress from 1863 until November 8, 1880, when he resigned, having been elected President on November 2nd. Garfield had received the Republican nomination on June 8, 1880, narrowly defeating on the 36th ballot President Grant's unprecedented bid for a third term. Slightly soiled. ¾-inch stain at blank margin on signature side. 1½-inch narrow tape repair touches 2 words. Overall, fine condition.
