Typed letter signed
Typed letter signed “Benj Harrison”. 1p., 8.0 x 10.25 inch, Indianapolis, Ind., 1898 November 21. On his personal stationery addressed to F.H. Farrington, Esq. in Brandon, Vt.. The letter in parts: "When I sent you the check I had made up my mind to be done with the attempt to get a pair of horses in Vermont, as it seemed to involve so much delay, and so much that was unsatisfactory. I have described to you pretty fully what sort of team I want... I solicited Senator Proctor's aid to get me a pair of horses in Vermont because I have a high opinion of the Morgan stock as roadsters. From what he said to me of you I felt I could trust your judgment and your integrity in the matter, and I must confide almost wholly in you to make the selection... Now I have concluded to say again to you, that if you can, right away, get me such a pair of horses for about the price mentioned for No. 3, I authorize you to buy them and to arrange to have them shipped to me... Please dispose of this matter with some promptness, as, if I do not get a team from Vermont, I must look about here.” Mailing folds, minor stain, else fine condition.
