Lot 48: ALS signed "R. B. Hayes," one page, 7.5 x 9, State of Ohio Executive Department letterhead, November 19, 1870. A letter to his son's schoolteacher, in part: "Ruddy has been suffering from a severe cold for several weeks, I have…thought best to take him out of the public school for the coming winter." Double-matted and framed with a color portrait and nameplate affixed to the glass to an overall size of 13.5 x 17.5. In very good condition, with intersecting folds, noticeable mirroring to ink, and small blocks of adhesive remnants to the lower portion.
