PRESIDENT ULYSSES S. GRANT

RECOMMENDS A NEW WEST POINT GRADUATE

GRANT, ULYSSES S(IMPSON).  (1822-85).  Eighteenth President of the United States (1869-77).  Autograph Letter Signed, “U.S. Grant”, as President, on imprinted Executive Mansion stationery.  Two pages, octavo.  “Washington, D.C.”, May 18, 1870.  Near fine condition.  To “H.D. Cooke, Esq.”  Grant writes:

“This will introduce to you Lt. Griffith, of the Eng. Cookes of the Army, who graduated among the first five of his class a few years since, and who I take pleasure in recommending as a young man of ability, energy and integrity.  Yours truly, U.S. Grant”. 

 

Full ALS’s as President on Executive Mansion stationery penned by Grant are, in our experience, quite scarce.  This is a fine example for any collector requiring a letter written “as President”.
