Dated New York, June 29, 1868, on "Tribune" letterhead, to "Hon. Chas. S. Spencer", a letter of introduction: "The bearer is my friend Bernard Covert, one of our best singers....who is engaged to sing at your great meeting on wednesday evening." Bernard Covert was a popular entertainer who was especially popular in temperance campaigns. Charles Spencer was involved in radical Republican politics in New York; he presided over a political rally at the Cooper Institute on July 1, 1868. He seconded Chauncey Depew’s nomination of Greeley to run for governor of New York later that month at the Republican convention, though both had “previously suffered from Greeley’s caustic pen.” (Stebbins, “Political History of the State of New York", 1913, p.354). One page, two conjugate leaves, some penciled collector annotations, mounting adhesions on page 4. In Very Good condition.
