James Garfield ALS, Mentor, OH July 26, 1879 to Mrs. Francis Lieber on the front and back of a single 4to sheet of House of Representatives letterhead. Garfield sends a copy of his correspondence with her late husband for a biography. My correspondence with him is among the most pleasant recollections of the past. Lieber was working with Thomas Sergeant Perry who published his biography of Lieber in 1882. His preface references Mrs. Lieber preserving her husbands papers and making them available for the work. Accompanied with the letter is an excellent, fresh hardbound 2006 re-print of Perrys biography. Quite a few letters to Garfield are quoted or copied in full. No doubt some of those were provided by Garfield as promised in this letter. An interesting letter showing the friendship with one of the centurys leading political philosophers and intellectuals. Garfield wrote over 100 letters to Lieber. It is also a nice example illustrating how Garfield saved and shared his extensive correspondence during his lifetime. It is a nice association letter linking an authentic letter with a published work. This item is offered by Custodians of History, Inc. I deal primarily in historic autographs.
