#108 - Abraham Lincoln: Otis J. Andrews Autograph Letter Signed Estimate: $400+

"I have on this day voted for Abraham Lincoln for President"

ALS signed “O. J. Andrews,” one page both sides, 8 x 10, November 8, 1864. In full: "I have on this day voted for Abraham Lincoln for President and Andrew Johnson for Vice President of these United States, and the following are my reasons for thus voting: 1st. The principles of the Republican party as laid down in their resolves or platform, made in convention in Baltimore, are good, loyal, patriotic, and in favor of fighting, until the rebels lay down their arms. 2d. The nominees have been tried, and Mr. Lincoln has proved himself to be an honest man, and anxious, to save the country, though not as fast as I would like…3d. I believe that the re-election of Mr. Lincoln will be another crushing blow to the rebels…My reasons for not voting for the nominees of the Chicago party are: 1st. The principles of the Chicago part, falsely called the Democratic party, as laid down in their resolves or platform, are bad; the raising of that party to power would in my opinion be particularly assisting Jeff Davis…2d. The rebels themselves hope for the elevation to power of the Chicago party…The candidate for president Geo. B. McClellan claims to be loyal and for the Union, but has allied himself with such a set of knaves…The rebel army are in favor of McClellan…I shall not therefore give my vote for such a…set of scoundrels." Includes an original 6 x 13.5 "National Union Ticket" from Massachusetts, with a "Lincoln & Johnson" eagle vignette at the top, and a newspaper clipping outlining the Republican and Democratic platforms for the 1864 election. In fine condition, with some light stains to the ticket.
