RUTHERFORD B. HAYES. ALS: "R.B. Hayes", 1p, 5½x8½. Fremont, Ohio, 1887 July 2.To New York City Republican leader James L. Lehmaier.In full: "Your favor of the 29th is before me. The two best engravings you ask for, viz: Marshalls & the full length, are out of print. The demand in these days is not large, and is supplied by Photographers at Toledo, McKechnie & Oswald. The cabinet size (not included) I send herewith taken last year is enlarged, and does well enough. If this will answer your purpose I will send you one with pleasure, as soon as it can be got up." On July 20th, Hayes sent Lehmaier an enlarged copy of the McKechnie & Oswald photograph, taken in 1886, for the Republican Club of the City of New York. With Grant's death in 1885 and Arthur's death in 1886, Hayes was the only former President alive at the time and as a Republican, his picture was prominently displayed at party gatherings across the country. Lightly creased and soiled. Folds. Two file holes in blank left margin. Light ink transfer.
