Lot 35: ALS, three pages on two adjoining sheets, 5 x 8, United States Civil Service Commission letterhead, July 17, 1889. Letter to Mr. Rotts. In part: "Need I say how thoroughly I agree with you about the Navy Yard, under all its managements? Save perhaps the Indian Dept there is no branch of the Civil Service I am so anxious to see classified. But before trying to classify it I wish you to come over here and see for yourself how hopelessly we are overworked. We are 2000 examination papers behind in marking." The second integral page is professionally inlaid into a slightly larger sheet. In fine condition.
