The three-time presidential nominee needs a "tree doctor".
ALS: "W.J. Bryan", 1p, front and verso, 5½x8½. Asheville, North Carolina, (no year), September 25. To Mr. Vrooman. First and last page of a letter, in full: "Does your dept send out Tree Doctors on request & on what terms? We have bought a site for our summer home here & it has some beautiful trees on it. One, an oak over 3 feet in diameter, needs [page or pages missing] and some of the others ought to be treated. Please let me know what can be expected. Mrs. Bryan joins me in regards to Mrs. Vrooman. We hope to see you both in our new home (for the Summer) when it is completed." WILLIAM JENNINGS BRYAN (1860-1925) was a Democratic Congressman from Nebraska from 1891-1895. He was the unsuccessful Democratic nominee for President in 1896 (McKinley), 1900 (McKinley) and 1908 (Taft). Bryan served as Wilson's Secretary of State from March 4, 1913 until June 9, 1915, when he resigned because, as a pacifist, he disagreed with the President's statements following the sinking of the Lusitania. His wife, MARY BAIRD BRYAN, was admitted to the bar in 1888 but never practiced law. She studied law to be helpful to her husband in his work. Lightly creased. Light show through. Fine condition.
