SETH L. MILLIKEN
On letterhead of the House committee he chaired, he promises to have candidate pictures sent, and celebrates his excellent health one year before his death.
Autograph Letter signed: "S. L. Milliken" as US Representative, 1 page, 6x9. Washington, D.C., 1896 April 20. On letterhead of the House Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds to "My dear Winship". In full: "Yours of the 12th at hand. I am glad to hear from you and to know that you are prospering, and happy. Accept my congratulations. My health is excellent, and I have no reason to complain. I will see Mr. Allen, Reed's Secretary, and have some of our candidates' pictures sent you. With regards to yourself and family. Sincerely your friend". SETH LLEWELLYN MILLIKEN (1831-1897) was a US Representative from Maine (1883-1897), serving until his death, two days short of one year after he celebrated his good health in this letter. "Winship" was probably Massachusetts educator and journalist Albert E. Winship (1845-1933), whose descendants owned and edited the Boston Globe. Milliken, a Republican, was distributing candidate photos in anticipation of the 1896 federal elections, which would return the White House to his Party's hands. The "Reed" mentioned in the letter was Thomas B. Reed (1839-1902), Milliken's colleague in the Maine delegation and the powerful Speaker of the House (1889-1891, 1895-1899). Mounting residue on verso. Adhesive residue at edges on verso (show through). Multiple notches at right edge. Toned and creased. Mounting residue on front at corner and center of edges.
