Lot 45: Two items: an ink signature, "For Mrs. J. F. Porter, with the cordial good wishes of William McKinley, May, 25, 1897," on a beige 5.25 x 2.25 card presumably clipped from the top of a published speech; and a TLS signed "W. McKinley," one page, 5.25 x 8.25, personal letterhead, December 9, 1896, in full: "I enclose you the letter which you left here a few days ago. Since reading the letter, I am more impressed that you are entitled to my thanks." In fine condition, with trivial foxing to the signature; and a partial separation to the intersecting folds (passing through two letters of the signature), staple holes, slight dampstaining to lower left corner, and some creasing and soiling to upper portion of the letter, otherwise fine condition.
