LS signed “J. A. Garfield,” one page, lightly-lined both sides, 4.75 x 7.75, House of Representatives letterhead, March 27, 1880. Letter to political ally Captain A. W. Stiles. In part: “I shall be glad to do any thing I can to assist our friend…but I do not yet know whether I can attend the State Convention. If the business of the House will allow it, I may be able to go.” In fine condition, with intersecting folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of the signature) and a brush to signature. Just a few months later on June 8, 1880, Garfield was nominated to run as the Republican candidate in the upcoming presidential election. A desirable example written just as his ill-fated run to the presidency was about to begin. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
