Guiding the Republican Party in 1862

ALS, one page both sides, 6.75 x 8, September 2, 1862. Letter to his former secretary, Adam J. Glossbrenner, in part: "Whilst Bailey is perhaps not much better than a Republican, I trust you will pursue such a course in the matter, as not to impair your high & well deserved standing with the party. I know you will not suffer your indignation against the scamps who have deceived you to induce you to act with imprudence. Above all, let there be no compromise on any candidate in York County, except yourself…I have every day more & more occasion to regret the loss of the document by Judge Black respecting which I have the written approval of Mr. Stanton. But I shall say no more to him on the subject. He is feeding on the rich pasture furnished him by the present Attorney General." In very good to fine condition, with scattered light creasing, and a small split along one of the several vertical folds.
