A president sails on Vanderbilt’s yacht
Description                           Estimate: $1,800+          

ALS as president, two pages on two adjoining sheets, 4.5 x 6.75, family crest letterhead, September 21, [1883]. Response to a dinner invitation from Mrs. Paran Stevens, a noted New York socialite. In full: “It will give me much pleasure to dine with you tomorrow evening, at 8 o'clock. I did not get your note until late this evening—having been out sailing & driving all the afternoon;—or I would have sent you an earlier answer.” Professionally inlaid into a larger sheet and in fine condition. Accompanied by an unsigned engraved portrait. From the collection of John Augustin Daly. As reported in several newspapers of the time, President Arthur was vacationing in Newport and had gone sailing that afternoon with Cornelius Vanderbilt aboard his yacht, The Tidal Wave. The following day he enjoyed a luncheon hosted by Vanderbilt before having dinner with Mrs. Stevens. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
