WILLIAM McKINLEY
Letter from the Ohio Governor on behalf of a man from Canton, Ohio, writing that he is "a young man of good address, sustaining the highest personal character at home & as I believe is entirely worthy of confidence"
Manuscript letter signed: "Wm McKinley Jr." as Governor of Ohio, 1p, 8x10½. Columbus, 1892 April 21. To Whom it may Concern. In full: "This will introduce Mr Wade Chance of Canton O whom I have known since boyhood. He is a young man of good address, sustaining the highest personal character at home & as I believe is entirely worthy of confidence. I bespeak for him the courtesy of those to whom he may present this letter." McKinley served as Governor of Ohio from 1892-1896. At the July 2-5, 1892 Republican National Convention, McKinley sought to wrest the nomination from President Harrison who was renominated on the first ballot with 535 votes to McKinley's 182. William McKinley (1843-1901) represented Ohio as a Republican in the U.S. Congress from 1877-1883 and 1885-1891, and he served as Governor of Ohio from 1892-1896. Elected 25th U.S. President in 1896, McKinley was reelected to a second term in 1900 with a larger plurality of votes than any other Chief Executive before him. The U.S. became a world power during his Presidency, winning a war with Spain (1898) and acquiring overseas colonies (Puerto Rico and the Philippines). On September 6, 1901, at the Pan American Exposition in Buffalo, New York, President McKinley was shot by Leon Czolgosz, an anarchist. He died on September 14, 1901, the third President to be assassinated. Heavily toned. Multiple folds, with minor tears in center where folds meet. Soiled. Surface creases. Edges and corners lightly worn and creased. Faint stains across. Otherwise, fine condition.
