Greeley, Horace.

AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED.

Washington Jan. 7, 1849. 2 page letter (back and front), 1x8", removal marks at left edge, folds, minor edge discolor else v.g. Greeley gives advice to a "Friend Noonan" regarding a contract for mail service between New York and Detroit (and points west), suggesting Noonan not "talk of that part of the route between Buffalo and New York… what you want is a contract for carrying the Detroit and Western Mail from Buffalo..l. separate from the Mail for Erie, Cleveland, Sandusky and Toledo." Greeley sugests steamboats to New Buffalo or the Michigan Central when it is extended to Chicago; he also sends regards to "Gen. King of the Sentinel" (Gen. Rufus King of the Milwaukee Dentinel & Gazette). Greeley was acting as a U.U. Representative from New York State at this time. Great Detroit content, from the man who said "Go West, Young man" to those who did so.
