Lot 101: ALS signed "R. B. Hayes," one page, 5.5 x 8.25, September 26, 1883. Letter to noted autograph collector Lewis Jacob Cist, in full: "Your letter of the 15th instant came during my absence. I am now so thronged with matters requiring instant attention that I cannot at once lay my hand on what you wish, or even recall definitely the fact that I have or have not that document you seek. But I will try to give it to you, to procure it somewhere. The poem strikes me as it does you—unless I put in a disclaimer as to the personal sting. I have no quarrel with my old adversary that it is in the least personal. If he has with me I do not know it." In fine condition, with trivial soiling to upper portion. RR Auction's Fine Autographs and Artifacts Auction 462 Wednesday, 14th October 2015 Estimate: $200-400
