ALS signed “R. B. Hayes,” one page, 5 x 8, September 28, 1876. In part: "I am sorry you have felt it necessary to go into this business, in the deportment of it that is so foreign to your character…I appreciate the interest you take, and am sincerely gratified by it. Your letter to Howard touched me specially. If 'hard times' beats us I should regret it more." In fine condition. Less than two weeks later Hayes was elected as the 19th President of the United States after one of the most contentious elections in national history—Hayes was awarded twenty contested electoral votes by a Congressional commission, enough to edge Democrat Samuel J. Tilden by a single vote, 185 to 184.
