Rare ALS as president, signed "R. B. Hayes," two pages on two adjoining sheets, 4.5 x 6.75, Executive Mansion letterhead, April 19, 1878. Letter to Minnesota Governor and his future Secretary of War Alexander Ramsey, in full: "I have your note asking me to give a friendly hearing to the invitation of the State Agricultural Society of Minnesota. It would certainly be an agreeable trip at the time indicated. But it is out of the question to make engagements so far ahead. Within a month or two I shall be better able to decide, and will correspond further with you." In fine condition, with rusty circular paperclip impression to the top of the first page.
