ULYSSES S. GRANT
The President requests a job be found in the Post Office Department.
ANS: "U.S. Grant" as 18th U.S. President, in pencil, 1p, 3¼x2. (Washington), 1876 October 19. In full: "Will the P.M.G. [Postmaster General] see if position of Messenger or Watchman can be given to Mr. Lewis Rasten?" Second Assistant Postmaster General James N. Tyner had succeeded Marshall Jewell as Grant's Postmaster General after Jewell resigned on July 12, 1876. Tyner, special agent of the Post Office Department during the Civil War, was Republican Congressman from Indiana from 1869-1875. At the time President Grant wrote this note to his Postmaster General, Republican Ohio Governor Rutherford B. Hayes was battling Democratic New York Governor Samuel J. Tilden for the Presidency. In the election 19 days later, Tilden won the popular vote but, in an electoral crisis that lasted until Friday, March 2, 1877, Hayes was declared President by the majority of one electoral vote. Lightly shaded at bottom margin touching date. Overall, fine condition.
