Mentor, Oh. June 26, 1880. - [1]p., plus integral blank. Old folds. Very minor soiling. Near fine. Letter written by President Elect James Garfield to Judge W.A. Richardson, thanking Richardson for his congratulations upon the occasion of Garfield's election to the presidency. He writes: "My dear judge, Yours of the 10th inst. was found awaiting me at Washington but I have not been able to acknowledge it until now. Accept my thanks for your congratulations and suggestions. As I am gratified by the former I shall hope to profit by the latter." Unfortunately, Garfield's term was short- lived, as he was shot less than four months into his term on, July 2, 1881. He died two and a half months later.
