Date Published: 1866

Description: 3 pages, each two-page fold-out measuring 7.75 x 10 inches, Washington, D.C., July 29, 1866, describing his ordeal in fighting the Radical Republicans. In part: "...For the last 8 or 10 days I have been the only Representative from Connecticut on the floor which has cast upon me all the labor of all the correspondence and work of the State - which is the reason I have not been able to do as much for my immediate constituents. The last 10 days have been the most important of the session and I have been left entirely alone. I confess to you I feel abused by it. I have worked by night and by day and am tired..." Note: The Radical Republicans saw to it that Hubbard was not re-nominated for his Congressional seat in 1867, thus depriving him of any participation in the Johnson Impeachment Trial and Reconstruction. Light stains on the upper right corner of the first page; still very good condition.

Comments: Connecticut Republican Congressman during the Civil War who was in full sympathy with President Lincoln's war policies.

Dear Mr. Hample, Just a short note to confirm receipt of the book and my absolute satisfaction with it. I am in the process of building a library of books from the interwar period to document and understand the events as seen by contemporaries as very often knowledge of what happened afterwards colours the views of historians. I am mainly focussed on Italian matters but books describing current events in other countries such as Germany, UK, France, Spain, Japan and the US are of interest to me. If you have a catalogue or can indicate to me any other books that you think could interest me, I would be very gratefll.Thank you in advance and best regards. - Massimo C.
