An Ohio Politico On President Johnson & Congressional Elections. Autograph Letter Signed, "John Bacon." Three pages, 8" x 12 ½".Springfield. May 22, 1866. Bacon writes concerning business, the weather, the year's crops and politics. Concerning the latter, Bacon writes: "…Politically I am in the fog. I fear there will be trouble ahead and while I think the President is acting very badly I think Congress is to blame, I think had the proper efforts have been made they might have got along … I have not much fault to find with the vetoes, the last one I think was perfectly right I see by the papers you are having trouble to Elect a Senator in Connecticut. Ohio elects Congressmen this fall. I do not think we will have much trouble we may lose one or two Union Members but hope not, our people are not disposed to enter into the quarrel and will not harm anything to do with the Copperheads … There may be some trouble in making the Nominations for Congress … There will be some opposition to our Congressmen Shellabarger but I think he will be nominated he appears to be making quite a reputation for himself, he has but little personal popularity, he is as cold as an iceberg, but has shown more talent his [?] previous thought to possess…" SAMUEL SEHLLABARGER (1817-1896) was a U.S. Representative from Ohio. Very Fine.
