Description: 1 page, 8 x 5 inches, Jefferson City, Ohio, August 8, 1868, written just five months after the shock that he would not be President of the United States, in part: "...I thank you very much for advancing the money to pay the draft. I expected the draft would be sent me [sic] here, if I should not be in Washington at the time it arrived here. I fear on that account it may have occasioned some trouble to my son..." Note: as Senator pro-tempore, Wade would have become the next President of the United States had Andrew Johnson been convicted. Instead, he became financially ruined and lost reelection to his Ohio Senate seat. Mounting remnants on verso; otherwise very good condition.

Comments: United States Senator and Radical Republican who fiercely led the charge for the impeachment of President Andrew Johnson.

I just received a book I ordered. I wanted to tell you how pleased I was with the condition of the book and especially how it was meticulously wrapped for shipment. I order a lot of books and your service far exceeds what I normally see from book dealers. I hope in the future I'll be able to find books I need at your book store. Keep up the good work. - Bruce V.
