Signed Engraving of President Grover Cleveland

Signed Illustration and Letter of Provenance


SKU: 1603 Category:


Signed black and white illustration of President Grover Cleveland, delivered to Mr. H.L. Hoyt of New York City. The letter was written by the Private Secretary of President Cleveland, Henry T. Thurber, on Executive Mansion stationary. The signed card was given as a gift by H.L. Hoyt to Richard H. Thompson, who added to the letter, noting that he had missed seeing “Mr. Cleveland when he was at the Victoria Hotel, during the Naval Review.”

Comments: Grover Cleveland began his unlikely rise to the presidency as the Mayor of Buffalo. Within two years of taking office, he would be nominated for the governorship of New York. He would gain national notoriety for fighting political corruption, specifically Tammany Hall in New York City. President Cleveland would go on to serve the only nonconsecutive presidential terms in history, serving from 1885-1889, then again from 1893-1897. After leaving office, the former president indulged his lifelong passion for sports and writing.
