On stationery of the House Committee on Ways and Means to Harvey Slusser, Esq., Louisville, Ky. In full: "Your favor is rec'd. and noted. About the only suggestion that I have to make is that you advise me when you desire your leave of absence. I think I can arrange the matter." 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. Slightly toned. Light surface creases. Mailing folds. Otherwise, fine condition.
