Autograph letters signed, two full pages, Buffalo, N.Y. July 25,1882. Great content about his political aspirations!

Letter written on his legal stationary but written as Mayor of Buffalo at the time Cleveland is referencing paying the Dr. for the attention to his mother who had died a few days earlier, then proceeded to discuss his expanding political career.

 Letter in part: To "Dear Doctor, It looks as though quite a boom had started in favor of my candidacy for Governor. This town is full of it. Of course, I am not misled..by the assurances of partial friends and neighbors & think..it is quite improbable that so obscure a personage as I should be selected to head our ticket..To tell you the honest truth, I am pretty comfortable now, and don't see, as a personal matter how any new office will increase my comfort. And yet if this nomination should come in a proper shape, you may be sure I would accept it. I shall not lie awake at nights over it. If such a strange thing should happen as that I put to the front, nothing would please me more than to make a good showing in Mother's home..." Rising from obscurity, Cleveland was elected Governor of New York later in 1882, and President in 1884.
