Autograph Letter, signed ("J. A. Garfield"), as Congressman from Ohio, to Ezra Booth Taylor of Warren, Ohio, acknowledging the receipt of $500
Washington. D.C, 21 november 1869 - Ezra B. Taylor, a Republican lawyer and judge from Garfield's home state of Ohio, was elected Republican Representative to the 46th Congress to fill the vacancy created by Garfield's resignation to seek the Presidency. Taylor served several terms in Congress thereafter. In this letter to Taylor, Garfield writes, "Your favor of the 18th, inclosing a draft - for Five Hundred Dollars, is just received and I have endorsed the amount on your note. It comes just in time to aid me in a hard pinch - I have obtained a loan which will tide me over for the present -" Garfield pens an intriguing postscript: "I think it was right that the P.M. at Ravenna [Ohio] should be allowed a check line - & am glad to have been able to secure the allowance for E.T.E" 4to. 1 p., in ink, on letterhead of the House of Representatives. Fine
