RUTHERFORD B. HAYES (1822-1893). Hayes was the Nineteenth President. ALS. 1pg. 5 ½" x 8 ½". August 9, 1889. Spiegel. An autograph letter signed "Rutherford B. Hayes" as former President with his scarce complete autograph. He wrote to his nephew John G. Mitchell, Jr.: "Your photograph is a very excellent one. All the faces are good - a rare thing in a group. Your mother and Aunt Loo & Fanny [Hayes Platt] are particularly. I shall prize the picture. Accept my special thanks for it. Tell your mother we are quite likely to get a very good copy of the Honeymoon Portrait of Aunt Loo & Uncle Ruddy. I send you one of Lucy Keeles...With best wishes & love to your mother & all. Sincerely your Uncle Ruddy Rutherford B. Hayes". Mitchell (1838-1894) was a Union general who fought at Chickamauga, Atlanta and Franklin. The letter has three folds and a couple thin spots near the top corner, and is in fine condition overall.
