Lot 50: ALS, one page both sides, 4.25 x 6.75, Gray Gables, Buzzards Bay letterhead, August 17, 1902. Letter to E. A. MacMillan, in part: "Any political utterance of mine seems to be treated as a Signal for all sorts of protests from certain so-called Democratic quarters. I think therefore it is better to relieve me from an expression in detail of the reasons occurring to me why the next Congress should be Democratic. If by Democratic is meant a condition which shall be honesty truly of the old sort…the next House should be Democratic." In very good condition, with vertical and horizontal folds (a vertical fold passing through a single letter of the surname), a tear to lower portion of body, and light toning around signature from previous display. Provenance: The Everett Fisher Collection.
