1880 President R. B. Hays ALS on Executive Mansion, Washington letterhead. One page, period ink, dated July 7th, 1880.
Marked "Private" and addressed to the "Hon. R. W. Thompson," the Secretary of the Navy. The President states he will probably follow Thompson's suggestion concerning the Collectors House at Portland, but he wants Thompson to listen fully to both sides. A rare commodity in a politician at any time in history!
